A story involving the famous Fidel Castro, who ironically arrives at Miami, like so many of his fellow Cubans, and at the same time living through a Cuban- American experience, creates the perfect scenario to watch him become a more humble person; the "Quixote of American Socialism". At the same time two sub- stories will strike the "emotional string" in our interior. The movie does not pretend to make any political statements on the Cuban Revolution or Fidel Castro's biography, however its purpose is to establish the story of the Miami of Today, in which all kinds of Cuban- American characters display their lives, their feelings and intentions relating to Fidel in his temporary and uncomfortable exile. The story shows "the other Cuba" and her two faces; one of the exiled Cubans, seeking the "American dream" and the other of the Cubans who capitalize this dream by camouflaging their political and economic interests, manipulating the dream of the others.

Alejandro Gonzalez Padilla
It was a good movie if you like documentary type films
I thought it was pretty good. It was really interesting and it gave you two sides to the story about those wanting to come to America fleeing from Cuba and how they think about the country they left behind and a possibility of what Fidel might have gone though had he come on a boat. It's interesting to watch. I say get it and watch it for yourself. I liked it personally. But again I like docudramas too. It had some light humor as well and drama and serious parts. Overall good flick. The ending didn't make me mad like some movies do. The ending is pretty believable if what happened in the film really happened laughing out loud!
