Am Cuba I Movie Review

foreign urusevsky sergei film

Agitprop Russian-Cuban co-production illustrates different aspects of the Cuban revolution from the toppling of Batista's decadent Havana to idealistic soldiers and student revolutionaries. Lots of oratory and deliberate artificiality combined with cinematographer Sergei Urusevsky's stunning high-contrast photography. A 1996 Independent Spirit Award nominee for Best Foreign Film.
