This is a hard movie to comment on: nothing spectacular but nothing to rant against.
The several story lines each have their interest and each develop reasonably well. The level of satisfaction you find may be more directly related to where you are in your journey than the particulars of each story.
There's nothing new here, although several other comments indicate the typical appeal for nationalism (i.e. one of the Cuban protagonists) or the "unusual" (the paraplegia love interest).
A nice slice of life en Espanol... well-suited for the Spanish film buff.
