A fantastic fantasy film that deserves to be watched by all.
20 February 1999 | by larnieSee all my reviews

This film is an excellent example of how a film does not need big movie stars and all-action effects scenes to be a charming and well-constructed piece of entertainment.

Although this film is Cuban, this should not put anyone off from watching it. It still has humour and style in all the right places. If you have ever seen and enjoyed 'The Icicle Thief', then you'll enjoy this film.

I would (and regularly do, but to no avail) recommend this film to anyone who appreciates the cinema.
