50 minutes in the movie there is a scene where Fico interrupts Pizzi's dinner. You see Fico with a burning cigarette in the mirror's reflection. He pulls his cigarette from his mouth. Then the camera angle switches directly on him and you see him with a non-burning cigarette in his mouth. When you see Fico's reflection again the cigarette has disappeared from his mouth. See more »
Andy Garcia really hit close to home with this movie. The film does justice to every Cuban-American out there who has wanted the true story of his/her country's history to be told. The casting and acting were spectacular. As a Cuban-American I was pleased to see that the film was historically accurate. Furethermore, the movie shows how soo many Cubans were forced to give up their lives and families because of this revolution. The process of leaving your homeland for hopes of a new and better life is something this movie does an amazing job depicting. I hope everyone turns out to support the film whether you do or do not know the TRUE story of Cuba. Andy, te la comiste!
