Strange. But has the taste of Havana
31 October 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I wanted to like this movie. And I did. Sort of - about half of the novels are good. The other ones are simply weak. And, as previous reviewer mentioned, there is a disconnect after the second novel, and I had to bridge the gaps in my own imagination.

But despite this, and despite the lack of one common story, there is a humour, there is a feeling and flavor of Cuba. And, as Havana is an eclectic mix of languages, cultures and ideologies, so is this movie. So, in a strange way, it fits.

Not a masterpiece, but has its good moments. Personally, I expected to hear much more music, though.
