Great Documentary, well researched
28 August 2017 | by lulu-momoSee all my reviews

I really enjoyed this documentary. It provides a quite objective view about the whole history of Cuba from the beginnings to today. The several comments from authors, historians and witnesses are very helpful guiding the story. Sadly I don't really like the narrator's voice in English. If you are a German speaker, I'd recommend you to switch to German, because then all of the Comments are narrated, and the narrator sounds better to me.
