  1. José Neves's rating of the film Salut les cubains

    35mm. Salut Varda's cinema, which at this time knew how to edit energetically out of a constant substrate, creating musicality, differential rhythms and joy. Excessive music, however.

  2. dionysus67's rating of the film Salut les cubains

    Rarely has documentary film provided via stills only such a remarkable exposition of the history of a people, their politics, joy, alertness, art. Varda does wonders in this rhtythmic short, steeped in music (not the slightest risk of a folklore 'reading'), ethnic and cultural mix. Ironies are always contained and the ultimate flavor is of an empathetic, yet controlled admiration by a distant observer.

  3. FISCHER's rating of the film Salut les cubains

    Agnès Varda a filmé et commenté quelques 1800 photos prises lors d'un voyage à Cuba... www.cinefiches.com

  5. paulina's rating of the film Salut les cubains

  6. Funda Can Çuvalcı's rating of the film Salut les cubains

    A creative and enjoyable work of cinema made up of photographs. It was also nice to see some details on life in Cuba after the revolution.

  7. panagiotatos's rating of the film Salut les cubains

    7,5/10 this rather one sided, romantic view on Cuban revolution is based on an inspired montage of photos of everyday people, men of power and of course Castro.

  8. DrFirestone's rating of the film Salut les cubains

    Excellent document, I appreciate how the images were put together, amazing work; it manages to capture the emotions, the atmosphere, as well explains the background: history, politics, art, people, and of course Fidel and the Cuban revolution! Great music.

  9. dAlton Anthony's rating of the film Salut les cubains

    A creative way to make a film from a box of negatives. Like taking a half hour to sit down with Agnes and rummage through her scrapbook. Rewarding but incomplete.

  10. Leon Rice-Whetton's rating of the film Salut les cubains

    Beautifully photographed, gorgeously edited and soundtracked. Smart, interesting film making. Captures wonderfully a certain cuban spirit at a unique time in history.

  11. captainfez's rating of the film Salut les cubains

  12. Julian Stuart's rating of the film Salut les cubains

    Very interesting film! My first Varda (long overdue). It felt reminiscent of Marker yet a pre-curser to Marker as the composition of images reminded me of La Jetee. Yet the kind of observational-travelogue method seemed prophetic of Sans Soleil. All together very interesting look inside Cuban culture/history from the perspective of a tourist. Would've enjoyed a bit more detail even!

  13. Jacques de Villiers's rating of the film Salut les cubains

    A delightful film! The dance sequences, in particular, are quite magical. I was wondering if anyone could confirm: is that Alain Resnais amongst the people filming in the opening scene?

  14. Shayne Bowden's rating of the film Salut les cubains

    Agnes Varda photographic recollections of visiting Cuba a few years after the revolution....... by way of a film documentary. Great stuff.

  15. zoerose's rating of the film Salut les cubains

    A synthesis of fascinating pictures of a liberated land, Agnes Varda's "Salut Les Cubains" is a heart-lifting testimony of the dreams and hopes of the people, both within and outside of Cuba, that were carried away from the force of the Cuban Revolution. The film brims with Cuban rythm and tempo as it tries to create a short portrait of big people living and dreaming just a few miles off the U.S. coast.

  16. between7skies's rating of the film Salut les cubains

    Varda's magic... she brings us close to the pulse of Cuba, in a short film in ways that news coverage can never do.

  17. tintinmugshot's rating of the film Salut les cubains

    Great montage, free and relaxed film made out by photos.

  18. Tiago Simoes's rating of the film Salut les cubains

    Worth watching! Interesting, innovative and very well crafted!

  19. Daishi's rating of the film Salut les cubains

    Good pace and good good Cuban music. In the film, all pictures about Cuba are beautiful.

  20. dunjatello's rating of the film Salut les cubains

    Short and sweet, and simply brilliant in its ability to convey so much of the core in such a short time and such a format.

  21. Nabil Hamzaki's rating of the film Salut les cubains

    An inventive, playful, photomontage essay on post-revolution Cuba.

  22. Tutu888's rating of the film Salut les cubains

    I really love the work of Agnes Varda but the praise (in images) for a dictatorial regime in this movie leaves a bitter taste in my mouth

  23. tristanetyseut's rating of the film Salut les cubains

    Pleasant and optimistic doc on post revolutiobary cuba.

  24. Arthur Freitas's rating of the film Salut les cubains
