Brilliant little gem
5 January 2014 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

This film is brilliant on so many levels from the story, to character development, to script, cinematography and editing. It completely conveys the chaos and desperation of trying to escape an oppressive society, that in spite of the ties of family and community, makes life unbearable. Add to that the coming of age man loving man story in a homophobic Cuba and you can see why these two young men have to run away.

The story unfolds, unrolls, runs through myriad streets, chases, alley ways, emotional twists and turns all very organically. That is the talent of the director and editor to capture the texture of the lives of the characters in the life of Cuba.

I'm surprised this film didn't garner notice or awards as far as I could tell.

Definitely worth watching. It's a great example of contemporary neorealism or neo-neorealism! This could have been a film by Passolini.
