Storyline

Two Argentinian citizens, in short soujorn in today's Havana, meet two local Cubans, who happen to be mother and son. Accidentally, one of the couples reunite after many years, and their fate changes drastically. The other couple, a case of platonic love at first sight, falls deeply in love in the backdrop of Cuba's famous sea wall: El Malecón. Finally, as a nice touch to the story line, the experiences of a homosexual couple and of a young heterosexual couple serve as secondary support to the plot. Written by ElianaM

A Chain of Commonplaces
12 May 2003 | by (cincinnati, ohio) – See all my reviews

I have never seen so many commonplaces packed in 70 minutes of film. We have a magic place in which people fall in love instantly or find their lost loves thanks to the attraction of the magic beautiness of the land; honest people who find each other; bunches of good natives and most of all: poor acting.

On top of that, the movie, with its constant references to Che Guevara, to the evilness of money and to the sacrifice of the people, is a badly disguised propaganda of Castroism, trying to perpetuate the myth of "a dream that failed because it was too beautiful". This is Marxism for tourists at its worse. It works like a bad parody of Endless Love surrounded by natives.
