A well-written and played comedy, dealing with the real individual freedom. Here achieved by a retired old man who escapes from Italy flying to Cuba. Or better from a family in which money, power and appearance (there are indeed many of them in Italy, unfortunately !) and choosing the relaxing rhythm of fishing in the Caribbean sea. Starting from this premise, the movie shows the voyage of the daughter who flies to look for his father. Going in Cuba she will realize many things about her family, and she will discover the good and bad things Cuban people have to afford each day. Last, but not least, she will meet and know a (french) detective who decided to live there. Dialogues work indeed, and the story flows light and pleasant, even if it is a bit ingenuous. Still, it gently forces the audience to reflect about the differences between a typical occidental way of life, with all its typical (sacred, damned or something halfway ?) status symbols, and a different way of life, in which you first have to renounce to many things, but you then get something in return. Something money just can't buy.
