In 1991, the USSR is falling apart and Cuba enters its hardest economic crisis. Sergio, a professor of Marxism who can't provide for his family, and Sergei, a Soviet cosmonaut stranded in the Mir space station, share a common passion: amateur radio. Through this hobby, both men will be able to help each other in facing the dramatic changes of their countries.Written by
Was announced to be the official submission of Cuba for the 'Best Foreign Language Film' category of the 91st Academy Awards in 2019, but this selection was not included into the official final list of submissions by the Academy. See more »
Use an extraordinary imagination, this film from Ernesto Darana showed that the human being despite uncountable differences can help each other when need it. Using an impossible situation a Cuban a Russian ( communist) and American, former member of Nasa are tangled in an extreme situation. Every character have their own personal-social- political problems which can affect the other, but all of them find the way to work together for the best solution of the major problem. I found the photography , the special effects amazing, considering that the film is Cuban. I am still surprise, waiting to get it in the market in zone 1 to buy it. I love the previous work of Ernesto Darana. All the crew and staff related to the film deserve the recognition of the film system, this film is marvelous. Great Job!!!
