Movie Reviews

Balanced and touching film
D. Martinez | USA | 01/29/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I disagree with the post that this movie is sending a political statement. Growing up in Miami and later venturing to different parts of the US, I feel I present a fairly balanced political view with regards to Cuba. While it can be argued that the film is pro-Castro, I think it the opposite could be argued as well.
Also note that the characters clearly state that neither side is to blame and that this family was simply victims of the political climate of the times.

As a Cuban-American, I can honestly say this is the most objective film I've seen on the subject (and that is HARD TO FIND!). It's true focus is on a beautiful yet painful story of a torn family and incidentally the heartfelt kindness and warmth that I honestly feel is plentiful in Cuba.

You can accuse me of being political (as I'm sure some fellow C-A will) but this is DEFINITELY a film that should be seen by anyone interested in learning about Cubans and Cuban-Americans. I went through a very similar experience when I made my first trip to Cuba in 2000.....

Enjoy this film..."
