I was so excited to go and see this film. I really liked “Paris Je t’aime” (2005) and “New York, I love you” (2008) and this movie looked like it was kind of the same idea but in my home town. Finally, last night I watched it at Le Noveau Latina theatre in Paris. First […]

En mi lenta misión de actualizarme con los filmes cubanos he encontrado esta película de Chijona en Youtube. El elenco es brillante, de lo mejor del cine cubano, así que vale la pena echarle un vistazo sólo por eso. Hasta Yotuel, el integrante del grupo Orishas, tuvo su rol en esta comedia. El guión no […]

I have been trying to catch up with Cuban films lately. Not necessarily new Cuban films but movies that have been released for a while now. Broken Gods is a film from 2008, movie debut of Ernesto Daranas Serrano. I was interested in the cast (Silvia Aguila, Isabel Santos, Hector Noas, Patricio Wood) and even […]
