"People know my country as it is reflected in the world media. I tried to show how Cuban people actually live. I tried to show that we have dreams and hopes."
These were the words of the director; before I saw this excellent documentary in a special presentation for the foreign media, last November, in La Habana.
Technically, the movie has a fluent editing of parallel lives of Cuban people. The theme keeps the viewer a bit 'far' from the story; it is clear that the movie was made more for foreigners than the citizens. It has no dialogues; not even one word. Instead, it has very strong international visual symbols. So gains, the word 'Suite', its own international meaning.
Suite Habana, tries to show that excluded Cuban Society, is no different actually from all other societies; in a very calm and sensitive way.
I can hardly keep myself revealing the 'very clever' magnificent surprise of the documentary! It is better I stop writing now... Hoping to see it, at least once more.
