a little inaccurate in terms of depicting Cuba as a whole, but still an informative and amusing documentary.
★★★★★ Nouvelle Vague goes Cuban.
NICE FILM, but I don't get it when they says that cuban music has french influence. Are these slaves really french people?
Wonderful little documentary. Great photography and the humoristic narration, both visual and verbal,makes this a feast. But was (and is) the reality in Cuba so fantastic? They have their political prisoners too...
At last we see Cubans, just as they are, rhythmic, vibrant and subversive. In each image, the paired narration by Varda and Piccoli give the historical context of these images. Under further examination we get a sense of their punctum - the aspect which wounds the spectator - creating a beautiful link between the subject in the image and the spectator. She structures most of her films on Barthes' ideology.
Wonderful little 60's doc. from Varda. Loved the playful narration and the great music. At 10 years after revolution the dream was still alive.
I wasn't expecting to see Beny More and Nicolas Guillen! What lovely photos.This just reinforces my desire to travel to Cuba one day.
Loved it! Varda is one of my heroes.
A good way to find out more about Cuba
Salut les cubains is such a wonderful film. I'm glad it's available here on The Auteurs. This film is featured in the Directors World Cup 2010 here at MUBI. Hopefully it will do well and a lot of people will be able to see the film. PM me for more info on the Directors World Cup if you don't know about it already. Thanks!
I love this film, every single aspect of it. Me encanta esta película, toda.
Favorite line: "The Cuban woman has African Pride plus Spanish spice: Liberty with a smile."
