Trivia

During a layover at Miami airport on the way to promote the film at the 2012 Tribeca Film Featival, actors Anailín de la Rúa de la Torre (Lila) and Javier Nuñez Florián (Elio) defected to seek political asylum in the US. They never actually attended the film premier in New York. The two actors, who played twins in the film, resurfaced and told news outlets they had fallen in love during shooting and that they were now expecting twins of their own. See more »

truly beautiful movie
25 May 2015 | by awenchangSee all my reviews

I'm a Cuban who spent more than two decades living in the island thus I know what authenticity means when it comes to judging what is really Cuban and what is not. This is a very beautiful and quite accurate movie when it comes to the Cuba that I know. I wonder what kind of help Mulloy the director received from people in Cuba because the script couldn't be more Cuban (language expressions, characters, locations and so on). She has managed to give us a very fresh picture of the Cuban reality despite of course the necessary dosage of fiction that the movie carries. I think Mulloy achievement with this production is far from trivial. Other more resourceful and heavy weights in the movie industry like Benicio del Toro have not being able, in my personal opinion, to capture Cuba so powerfully (thinking of "7 days in havana"). Kudos to Mulloy and all the people involved with this production for this wonderful gift to the world, but especially to the Cubans living abroad who can't stop from missing the island every single day of their lives. Thank you and know that have given this review a 9 because I don't believe in perfection.
