Now this one is a pearl. After “Silent hill”, this movie was a cure for sore brain, eyes and ears.
The story revolves around a family in Cuba, before, during and after the revolution. It`s a big family, three sons and all and each of them lives a different life. One goes off to join the revolution, one stays home with his family and one is torn in between.
Andy Garcia directs and starrs in this one, and he is brilliant. The camera-work is spectacular, a lot like in the Constant Gardener, and the music is excellent. The movie is coherent (although after Silent hill, everything looks like Shakespeare) and although there is plenty of stereotyping in it, it`s still a pleasure to watch.
