Excellent movie, one of the best of the revolutionary era
This movie has an excellent photography. Many of the frames look like paintings from Rembrandt. The use of light is wonderful and remembered me some of the takes from "The Garden of Finzzi Contini". Landscape and architecture from Havana is incredible. The film is a little slow but as the internal way of thinking of the characters is complex. Anyway the acting must be recognized as one of the best films produced during the revolutionary era in Cuba. One remarkable fact is that politics is just as the background of the plot and not the main course.The house where Amada lives is part of the plot and with the advance of the movie shadows are more and more evident. Idillic recreation of the moments with Marcial remember some of the best of the Italian neorealist movement.
