Una pequeña maravilla
10 September 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

We streamed "Miel para Oshún" on Netflix, and this is just the sort of film that reaffirms the reasons I subscribe: there is no other way I ever would have come across this movie, these actors, or this jewel of a story. Even if you know nothing about Cuba or Cubans, see this movie. This is a real tribute to them, to their sense of humor, inventiveness, and warmth.

Premise: 30-something, Cuban-born Roberto finally travels home from the U.S.A. after the death of his father to find that he has been lied to about his mother. He embarks on a sojourn of the soul, as well as a physical journey that is frustrating in extremis.

A buddy movie, a comedy, a drama, the movie is full of clever dialogue, some of which made me wonder if Castro's censors are lightening up, or just not "getting" it (a painter who stops painting because "some people saw strange allegories in my work" and made things difficult for her). This low-budget film proves that money isn't everything. It's moving, funny, intriguing and just plain entertaining. What else is there?
