Very beautiful
6 February 2013 | by (Milano, Italy) – See all my reviews

I bumped on this movie by mere chance while I was trying to learn how to use my AppleTV and YouTube on it. Well, I thought I would have seen just a few minutes of it, but ended up seeing it to the end. Even more: I downloaded it from YouTube and found the English subs, because (even if I am Italian) I could not understand well the Spanish dialogs. I was simply delighted. I visited Cuba in 1974 and had an idea about their cultural vivacity, but I think I had never seen a Cuban movie. So this one has been a double surprise. The direction is brilliant and the acting really very good, particularly the two kids. Happy to have discovered it. Ah, by no way it's a movie only for kids.
