Movie Reviews

Viva cuba movie
Isabel Allende Isa | 07/08/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I rented this DVD and then had to buy it. I teach High School Spanish and show my students movies sometimes that are about Spanish culture.
I have shown this movie in 2007 and 2008. My students loved it. They laughed out loud. They were not happy with the ending but that is typical of teenagers. They always want a happy ending. I have difficulty finding movies I can show because so many are R rated. This one is wonderful. I highly recommend it for any Spanish class."
Beautiful film .................

"Having never even read a review, we rented this film. It was wonderfully done , full of Cuba images and culture. The story centers around 2 children and their love and friendship. The adults play a smaller role but still strongly projected by the director. In a moment of desperation the two children run away as the adults around them do not acknowledge them. They do not feel that they have a choice but to flee to resolve the situation. Wonderful scenes of Cuba...amazing really!
I cried and laugh and caught a simple film full of heart and culture!"

"This was a wonderful story about two children (Jorito and Malu), who run away from home in search of Malu's father because her mother wants to take her out of Cuba. They run into several funny adventures, and I just found the entire movie to be very heartwarming. The children are filled with such passion for their country and their friendship. And despite the mothers differences, they discover a common bond of finding their children. A powerful ending to this story awaits the viewer.

I enjoyed these young stars, I believe this is the first movie for Malu and I purchased Al Otro Lado to see Jorge again."
Joyful and gorgeous

"This lovely film will make you happy to be alive and, if you are Cuban, proud of your country and its people. It is also proof that, despite cultural or political differences, we are all members of the human family. Do not miss."
