Guaguasi [DVD] [1979]

Package Description: A través de los ojos de un campesino candoroso e ignorante, que se enamora de una corista en La Habana, Guaguasi logra una mirada cautivadora de la revolución cubana. Construyendo un romance absurdo, alentado y traicionado por el propio mentor de Guaguasi, la historia nos enfrenta a un triángulo amoroso que sirve de metáfora para un pais en transicion. Sin dejarse tentar por la política, el director cubano Jorge Ulla (Nadie Escuchaba) escapa de la trampa panfletaria y consigue un filme lleno de belleza y humor en el que se perpetúa el mito de La Habana, y con el que se nos regala una foto congelada de uno de los acontecimientos más románticos del Siglo XX.

Overview

Synopsis

Guaguasi
Rather than dramatize Castro's Cuban revolution as a central theme, this film made by Cubans in exile focuses on the disintegration of a young peasant's morality once he joins the revolutionary forces. The naive peasant was expecting adventure but before his stint in the military has ended, he is a trained killer, whether he is fully aware of it or not. When he takes up with a dance-hall woman in Havana and turns to drugs and alcohol, his decline accelerates, putting both his lover and his friends at the mercy of his slipping hold on stability. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi
