Valiente denuncia de la represión cubana, de la falacia de los regímenes comunistas que dicen defender al pueblo, pero no reconocen y persiguen los derechos de las minorías y de los que se salen de la ortodoxia de la revolución. La interpretación de Perugorria se ve hoy un tanto excesiva. El motivo principal de la pelicula es muy bello y emocionante en la escena final. Nota: 7
Recalls when I lived in the Philippines in the 60s and bits of culture like opera, even classical music, idealogical books, poetry, etc were hard to find. The lack made finding a tape recording or a blurred image or pirated copy of a book an almost sinful delight. If movies can help us relive the past so vividly they'd justify their being but, of course, they do more than that!
Enjoyed this and it brings to life what it must be like to live in a regime where so much of what I take for granted in my own life is banned, censored and/or considered subversive. Also makes a pointed observation about how oppressive state will divide its citizens into those that follow with a passion and those the rebel with a passion.
