Goofs

50 minutes in the movie there is a scene where Fico interrupts Pizzi's dinner. You see Fico with a burning cigarette in the mirror's reflection. He pulls his cigarette from his mouth. Then the camera angle switches directly on him and you see him with a non-burning cigarette in his mouth. When you see Fico's reflection again the cigarette has disappeared from his mouth.

Great movie!
28 April 2006 | by og0122See all my reviews

I think that for those who do not know what happened in Cuba during the revolution, this movie is a great film to watch (no matter what the critics believe). Not only do we learn how it happened, we also learn about the struggles of the Cuban people. As in a work of art, everything in this movie has meaning or significance. The story is real and is expressed with sentiment... a romantic, but also nostalgic feeling. Also, the movie captured many details of the Cuban culture (including family values). Finally, I'd like to add that to watch a movie about Cuba without the glamorizing of the revolution or any of its leaders is like a breath of fresh air. Andy Garcia is a genius!
