Documentary Cuban drama: a true work of art
28 October 2003 | by (Havana, Cuba) – See all my reviews

Extraordinary documentary filmed with fiction cinema techniques captures the essence of hard life in contemporary Havana, showing a day in a life of several real people from a ten-year old Down Syndrome child to a 79 year-old retired lady who sells peanuts in the street in order to make a better way of living. No dialogue. Superb use of sound and image, although filmed in video and later expanded in 35 mm. A true work of art.
