a great story in a forbidden setting
20 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Like all Cuban movies, this is made for Cubans with the knowledge that internationalists will be watching too; they're not made with the idea of instructing outsiders as to what's happening there. They do share with us, however, some of the daily realities of this remarkable people.

We get a lot of that in "Honey for Oshun" because it's a road movie.

Roberto also takes a road trip through his past, through the reality that his father kept from him. That - along with the trip through parts of a nation that our government forbids us to travel through in person

  • make for great viewing.




It's a fun movie.

So put aside all the preconceived ideas you might have about Cuba; this is not a propaganda film. Cuban filmmakers know they get their people discussing their problems and outsiders thinking about their stereotypes of Cuba, but they also know how to make entertaining movies.

"Honey for Oshun" is living proof of that.
