Storyline

"Not everything is what it seems". This is the motto of Fernando Pérez's Madrigal, an esoteric fable built, in the first part, around a handsome actor's love story with an overweight and homely girl (does he have eyes for her, or for her swanky apartment?) and, in the second part, recounting the story of a futuristic novel the actor is writing (which turns Havana into some dark orgyesque playground with a film noir tone).

Excellent Film
4 May 2009 | by See all my reviews

Wow what a great movie, honestly. Fernando Perez and his crew did a great job in this film. It reminded me of David Lynch film but it was a different style. Madrigal it felt original; unfortunately not everyone likes these types of films and obviously that's the reason why the IMDb score is so low. But in general the movie is excellent. The cinematography was really cool and the art was great it feel different it didn't felt like It was Cuba. The acting was really good too, everyone did a good jog. The original music was great too everything felt in place. I Love how the story was told. In conclusion if you like to see a work of art you should see this film.
