not just for kids
9 November 2012 | by See all my reviews

Although the two main characters in the film are 12-year old boys, I wouldn't say this is a movie aimed mainly at kids. I don't normally like movies with child actors, but I found this one charming. I've been to Cuba many times and think that this film does a good job of showing the current situation with social and economic class differences growing larger all the time. It was touching to see how the boy from the poor neighborhood was so self-reliant, hard-working, willing to share whatever he had, it felt real to me, I've known people like that in Cuba, thank God not everyone is motivated by self-interest. It didn't feel preachy at all, it developed naturally and had some interesting and amusing moments. I'd recommend it to anyone who is interested in contemporary Cuba. Good acting, good direction, it leaves you with something to think about. To me, a welcome change from some of the dark, brooding, depressing films coming out of Cuba in recent years.
