good version of old story
14 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I just saw this film yesterday at the Denver Film Festival which is showing in competition under the English title Ants in the Mouth. Although this is not a new story, a guy gets out of prison to look for the woman who double crossed him, nor told in a fresh style, it is well filmed and entertaining none the less. The good guy protagonist is sympathetic, a real Humphrey Bogart kind of character that you hope will get out of it alive. The bad guy is a creditable bad guy and you hope he does get killed and the woman is beautiful and mysterious. The film is beautifully shot in a re-created Havana just before the rise of Castro with great period costumes and cars along with a lovely score reminiscent of Chinatown.
