A clever black comedy
5 July 2004 | by margarita15See all my reviews

I watched "Nights in Constantinople" (Las noches de Constantinopla) during a Festival of Alternative Cuban Cinema, in Miami. Weird thing, it's not at all an alternative or experimental movie. It certainly is a low-budget production, but its sophisticated "mise-en-scène" make it more imaginative than most of current Hollywood mainstream films. "Nights in Constantinople", in a superficial view, may be considered as a frivolous black comedy about Cuban reality today. But in this unpredictable and funny film appearances are always deceiving. If you are really interested in issues like individual freedom and rights, this film is a kind of Cuban-style "Risky business", but better and deeper. Cuban cinema is here at its best.
