Memories of Underdevelopment

May 2, 2013

It’s post-revolutionary Cuba, Sergio a middle class intellectual watches his parents and wife leave for Miami. Facing a life of adjustment, he disdainfully observes and reflects on change. His attraction to two women distract him. Skilful direction, performances and use of documentary footage earn this film top critical regard. ¥One of Cuba’s finest films, unimpeachable quality.’ LA Times.
