Storyline

1981: Marita Lorenz checks into an Havana hotel and, in a flashback, remembers 22 years' before. At 19, visiting Cuba from New York, she comes to the attention of Fidel Castro, the country's rebel president. He invites her to be his secretary and to be part of the making of the new Cuba. She accepts, but soon learns he already has a capable secretary; Marita's duties lie elsewhere. She becomes pregnant. She's also come to the attention of the FBI and the CIA, so when she wakes up in a US hospital after what may have been a botched abortion against her will in Cuba, her government presses her into service as an assassin: her job, to go back to Cuba and kill her former lover.

Mostly fictional
4 March 2003 | by (Milwaukee) – See all my reviews

Marita Lorenz later years were chaotic, including an abortion she blamed on the CIA. Overall history is a little murky, but it seems written for dark entertainmant rather than history. Consider for one example, the depiction of pictures, posters, signs, etc. of Mantegna/Castro everywhere, including in her hotel room. There are no likenesses of Castro to be seen anywhere in Cuba, no statues, certainly no airport named after him.

That silly crap wherein the alleged Castro line goes, "..the Communists fought with us in the sierras". Horse-pucky! The truth, for which the producers had no regard, is that the Communist Party of Cuba opposed revolution -whether Castro's or anyone elses. Nor was there any "my wife" Castro refers to at one point. Castro's ignoring of the pleas of a woman imploring him about her son, with "I don't even know her" was more crap possibly written by Republicans, as was the depiction of Castro's personality. Such is not why Cuba had a popular revolution from within, lead by the most popular politician in Cuba before Batista's coup d'etat of 1952. Castro sued Batista for illegal succession before turning to revolution... a movement so popular with Cubans that a mere 18 revolutionaries who survived their landing grew so popular that that they overthrew a widely despised government, doing so without Communist support. This movie attempted to distort history.
