Cute couple
13 February 2019 | by qwertinnoSee all my reviews

This movie tells the story of Candelaria and Victor Hugo, an older couple in Havana. They live in the times of one of the biggest crisis in Cuba where food is scarce and they have to raise chickens illegally to eat. One day Candelaria finds a video camera which is a luxury for Cubans and takes it home. Victor Hugo starts using the camera to record moments with Candelaria. This leads to a money lender seeing an opportunity that Victor Hugo and Candelaria are embarrassed to take.

The movie is nice and quite funny, the characters are cute in their relationship and it shows how even in very bad poverty, happiness can be found.
