Storyline

Television plays an important role in the life of the people of Havana. Despite there being only one program - the daily broadcast of the Telenovela is a most welcome distraction from the boring everyday life in the capital of Cuba. The movie watches enthusiastic and less enthusiastic viewers, and the almost holy people who are repairing the precious, mostly Russian devices. Written by Marco Radke <marco@030-kino.de>

Whitewash
9 September 2002 | by (Columbia, South Carolina, USA) – See all my reviews

This is a moderately interesting German-made documentary about contemporary Cuba. The camera actually gets inside the homes of ordinary Cubans and interviews some of them at length. There are extensive clips from soap operas that many Cubans watch. And the dire situation in which most Cubans find themselves was made clear. However, the film is tantamount to a whitewash of the oppressiveness of the Castro regime. (Castro's name, by the way, is not mentioned once.) The omnipresence of the police in public places, the fact that thousands of Castro opponents have been put in jail or in psychiatric hospitals, the fact that thousands of young women are forced to resort to prostitution to make ends meet--all of these issues are skirted. This film is worth seeing, but for another view I recommend seeing "Azucar Amarga" ("Bitter Sugar") to get a balanced picture.
