Rewarding artefact from a time of change.
- Memories of Underdevelopment review by TE
This classic from the early days of the Cuban Revolution crackles with energy and an urgent sense of a key moment in history.
Unsurprisingly it comes across as somewhat dated now, particularly in its gender politics.
The central character is something of a blank page, not one of the right wingers who flee to the USA, but also not a participant in the Castro revolution.
This leaves the film in a curious state of ambivalence.
