When everything is for sale, what's the value of love? Jesus does make up for a troupe of drag performers in Havana, but dreams of being a performer. When he finally gets his chance to be on stage, a stranger emerges from the crowd and punches him in the face. The stranger is his father Angel, a former boxer, who has been absent from his life for 15 years. As father and son clash over their opposing expectations of each other, Viva becomes a love story as the men struggle to understand one another and become a family again.
Too much dialogue can ruin a movie, but too little leaves the audience longing for more. What are the motivations for the caracters? Why they do what they do? It doesn't seem to matter to the writer and director. It is basically a film about poverty, that could be anywhere... South America, southeast Asia, even Iran! Why set it in Havana? Again, no clues. It is good, but would be better if it was a short film, 15 or 20 minutes, tops.
