Storyline

Lorenzo, a Cuban policeman specializing in grave robberies is sent to Havana to investigate the death of a Havana-born German national, Hermann (or German in Spanish) found in a famous grave. Lorenzo recounts his findings to the police chief (Major Anancio) as he investigates Dora, an elevator operator and Herrmann's landlady, Aguila and Silvia (who work for Cultural Affairs), Chrissy (a British-born Socialist Internationalist lover), Xiomara (Hermann's mother and a local drag queen as well), a dwarf, and a false Guatemalan who had raped Chrissy during her internationalist "love/sex campaign" in Guatemala. These are the main, but not the only characters, one must absolutely follow to make sense of the plot. Written by GMeleJr.

A collection of whacky characters and an intricate plot
20 November 2000 | by (Ottawa) – See all my reviews

I saw this film last Friday at the International Movie Club (Cinema International). It was still a very good evening though the copy was less then perfect. A thoroughly entertaining movie with a collection of whacky characters and an intricate plot. Some said that this movie reflects current conditions in Cuba (i.e. chaos) but even if you don't want to go this "deep" into the film, it has more than enough to entertain anyone. I would recommend it to those who don't mind that they can't leave the room for a snack because then they would miss some of the twists and turns of the story.
