Storyline

In a poor rural Cuban town, Bernardo's large extended family can just make ends meet. Then they learn about a trial to distribute among the many bearers of their name the proceeds of a pirate treasure which was deposited on a London bank in the Spanish colonial age. Passions soon rise from greed and lust, envy and suspicion, with numerous, often surprising conflicts. The money proves rather elusive, yet irresistible despite grim consequences. Written by KGF Vissers

A good pace comedy.
9 March 2009 | by xraulesSee all my reviews

I recently traveled to Cuba and get captivated by its beauty, its people (which are fun and friendly), and the society in general that seems to have a good mood which makes everyone forgets the problems they probably can have.

This movie keeps the fun and friendly atmosphere of the current Cuban society throughout all the sequences. The rhythm of the storytelling is easy to follow and enjoy; this is achieved thanks to a main character (Jorge Perugorría) that also plays the role of the narrator.

All the actors in the movie are brilliant with an spontaneity-like touch. Jorge Perugorría is an amazing leading actor as he demonstrated in many other movies such as Fresa y Chocolate.

I really enjoyed it.
