So he enters a world between dreams and reality; the path between Love and Suicide. ALBERTO (Luis Moro) lives a simple life. He never focuses on material possessions. Alberto is not living to acquire the symbols of past identities. He peacefully swims with life, knowing life will never outlast eternal time; dreams and reality are the same. Tomas find himself in a world of history preserved in the present, where time has stopped, and souls rise beyond material surfaces. This world exists in CUBA. The birthplace of broken hearts, false dreams and lost lives. A world that defies possessions, with the privilege of family, friends and the holly spirit. People appear in Cuba for many reasons.

Gorgeous and deliriously tragic
27 June 2006 | by brenda_durdleSee all my reviews

I heard about this film from the Nova Scotia Cuba Association, checked out the website and ordered the DVD, which arrived yesterday. I am 'hooked on' Havana and was so excited by the images in the trailers that I watched the film immediately. I love what Moro has done here. Havana may well be the lead character in this film, although I love Moro's character, Alberto. He seems to represent the what I have found in the Cuban people that I have met; he is insightful and spiritually wise. Daisy McCrackin is charming and Kamar De Los Reyes is wonderfully tragic. It is VERY important for people who live in the US to see Love and Suicide. It is difficult to believe that Cuba exists as it does, so near and so very far from the Bush regime. Whatever one has to say about the Revolution and the subsequent hardships for the Cuban people, this is a luscious and an historically important film, reminding us that it is a sad and beautiful world in which we live. End the blockade and free the five!
