Superb message formidably executed.
29 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is done within a specific framework where a Hollywood expectation of values would encounter a clash of perspectives due to its uniqueness. Taking into account certain limits such as budgetary restrains etc. and what appears to be a lack of support by the mainstream media in our country (USA) for this type of projection it seems to me an almost colossal achievement on the part of Mr. Garcia to produce and direct this classic of all films. The Lost City reminded me of a Dr. Shivago of the Caribbean done with incredible charm, taste and subtleness. This is not just a work of art but an act of love which cuts through the midst of a cultural maelstrom of rejection which every Cuban lover of justice and freedom has had to endure. Yes Andy you have achieved your goal and done it to perfection. Cuba and all lovers of freedom will forever commend you. Enrique E. Oliver
