During a layover at Miami airport on the way to promote the film at the 2012 Tribeca Film Featival, actors Anailín de la Rúa de la Torre (Lila) and Javier Nuñez Florián (Elio) defected to seek political asylum in the US. They never actually attended the film premier in New York. The two actors, who played twins in the film, resurfaced and told news outlets they had fallen in love during shooting and that they were now expecting twins of their own. See more »
Una Noche was probably one of the most entertaining movies I have ever seen because of its intensity. Every scene filled me with fright, surprise, and of course, questions. I think my favorite scene of the movie was the shark attack scene because it scared me (even though I almost saw it coming). The result was unexpected. I did not think Elio would go missing, and I most definitely did not think that Raul and Lila would end up right back in Cuba. Even though this feeling of uncertainty is uncomfortable, it definitely makes the film even better. I would definitely recommend watching this film if you are interested in surprise, mystery, and fast-paced action.
