Set in post revolutionary Cuba, this heart-warming film follows the story of an unlikely friendship between two very different men - one a heterosexual communist, the other a gay counter-revolutionary. A relationship shaped by political struggles and betrayal, we’re shown how love can be found through the seduction of minds.        Sensitively exploring the treatment of its protagonist during a period when discrimination was particularly high in the country, on top of being the first Cuban film to have a gay hero, this film shows how two opposites can delicately weave into a beautiful relationship, how true self-expression can be found through the freedom of accepting differing political views to one’s own, and the role of true friendships in the construction of one’s identity.

This iconic, Cuban LGBTQ+ comedy, made by the late Tomás Gutiérrez Alea last screened in London in 2009 - soliciting this praiseful review from Peter Bradshaw.

Directors: Tomás Gutiérrez Alea & Juan Carlos Tabío
