Trivia

During a layover at Miami airport on the way to promote the film at the 2012 Tribeca Film Featival, actors Anailín de la Rúa de la Torre (Lila) and Javier Nuñez Florián (Elio) defected to seek political asylum in the US. They never actually attended the film premier in New York. The two actors, who played twins in the film, resurfaced and told news outlets they had fallen in love during shooting and that they were now expecting twins of their own. See more »

Beautiful film, great music and interesting look into Cuba
21 February 2012 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

I had the privilege to watch this film at Berlinale 2012, and afterward to hear a Q and A with some of the actors, as well as one of the cinematographers and the director.

I really enjoyed this film. I found the story gripping, the actors convincing (especially considering they were previously untrained)and the overall film kept me hooked. In particular i felt the film showed a great balance between following the story while also managing to include a lot of street shots showing regular people doing regular things. I liked the way this was blended into the story, but didn't detract from it at all. Something else i think deserves a mention is the music and sound engineering. For a low budget film i found it superb. Not only was the music well chosen, and fitting for the scenes changes, but the overall audio presentation was great (this may have been partly due to the theater we were in though).
