Storyline

Over several years, we follow three households and their emotions in a barrio of Havana. Magalis is a nurse, rarely happy. An older man, Ignacio, professes his love for her; her father and her brother quarrel over her brother's sexual orientation; she thinks about leaving Cuba. Santo's wife Maria is expecting their first child. Tragedy strikes and Santo leaves, drowning sorrows in alcohol and crime while his son grows up in the care of an aunt wondering where dad is. Vivian and Chino are in love, passionate, but childless. The pressures of a society that demands grandchildren strain their relationship. She tries prayer. Fathers embrace their children.

comparable in quality to the worst Latin soap operas
10 November 2008 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This is without doubt one of the worst films I have ever seen.

I was really looking forward to it after going to Cuba for the first time this summer and seeing the tough life people live there and being a fan of Humberto Solás' early work.

The acting is truly dreadful and the script is worse - with all the important plot information delivered to the viewer through hackneyed dialogue in the least discreet way possible. The music is incredibly abrasive, which given Cuba's bountiful supply of great musicians is inexcusable.

Very disappointing. It's hard to believe this is from the same director as Lucía.
