I made great effort to watch this movie .but it was worth trying .very realistic and cruel side a life is shown . characters portrayed very beautifully and the acted well. one can say if this is life no one wants it . I never thought such low level poverty can make people do. some scenes in the film are very shocking , like shitting in a room on a paper and throwing it away in the street . some scenes are real sexy and interesting . a must watch film . if I could get it English version . I don't understand if this is cuba the che has fought to make . what the Cuban revolutionaries and leaders want to make it . they just want the country and not its people . its a slap on Cuban leaders face that they can't prosper being such a small country .
