This delightful movie has so many twists of plot as it gets the characters mixed into seemingly unresolvable conflicts.
But in the meantime, it raises issues that, for some, just might be difficult to endure having raised, particularly the examination of prejudice. Racial prejudice gets in there, but just general prejudices and superstitions get laid out there to be challenged.
It's a Cuban movie in which Cuban artists raise these issues for Cuban audiences - but it's also universal. It comes from the people that Nelson Mandela praised as "unparalleled" for their "consistent commitment to the systematic eradication of racism;" almost a decade later they created this film to encourage us - there and throughout the world - to look even deeper into ourselves.
And to have fun at the same time. Fun story, great acting and directing. Enjoy!
