Storyline

Vancouver-based Jack Petty, an insurance executive, is in Havana for an insurance conference. Taking the advice of Rita, a woman he meets at an airport bar on his way to Havana, Jack decides to ditch the stuffy conference and enjoy his stay for all that Cuba has to offer a tourist. In the process, he is guided around the hot night spots by Harry Smith, a British travel writer for Esquire magazine he meets along the way. While Harry does show him a good time, Jack begins to wonder if there is a shadier side to Harry than just being a travel writer, those thoughts due to one specific action by Harry and some mysterious people with who Harry associates. As Harry and Jack part company with Harry scheduled to go back to Britain, Jack becomes embroiled in what looks like a murder, he taking the path of what he considers the greatest safety for himself which leads him into a conspiracy for what looks to be another planned murder. In trying to save himself from any implication of wrongdoing ... Written by Huggo

Quotes

Anders: [calmly and matter-of-factly to Jack, strapped to a crude rack] For my money, torture is a flawed method of extracting information. But... it's the only one we've got. Now, perhaps it's a failure of imagination - certainly of technology, because a lie detector can tell us that you're telling us a lie, but it can't compel you to tell the truth. You see what I mean. Any way, we're gonna torture you, Jack, and then we'll see what's what...

adventures in Cuba
17 May 2016 | by ksf-2See all my reviews

"Jack" is played by Gil Bellows, who also wrote and directed this film, along with Tony Pantages. Jack finds himself in Havana, and is shown around town by Harry (Greg Wise), which leads to more and more trouble as we go along. Harry seems to have temper issues. It's all very noirish and mysterious. We're never sure what's going on, but it's all a grand adventure. About halfway through, we see what's going on. Jack has managed to get himself in the middle of a murder plot, and doesn't seem to have anyone to help him get out. One odd, interesting connection - The actress playing the "broker" is Phyllida Law; she is the actual mother in law of Greg Wise (Harry). The music throughout is AWESOME, as one would expect from Cuba. Also beautiful scenery. Great photography of the Cuba sunrise and sunsets. Really good. Hats off to the writers and the actors. Tight script and good performances by all. I enjoyed watching this one.
