A pleasant couple of hours, even if feels like an extended advert for the rum company who paid for it.

There are more misses than hits, and a week feels like a long time in Cuba.

Top Critic

A bloated and self indulgent arthouse marathon, riddled with cynical product placement.

Remarkably, not one of the seven stories takes a shrewd, or even Loachian view of the realities of living in Cuba.

Jul 30, 2012 | Full Review…

The faded grandeur of the Hotel Nacional features prominently and cliches of ladyboys, cigars, daiquiris and rafts to Miami abound.

The gravest impediment is the bloated running time.

Audience Reviews for 7 Days in Havana


An irregular and heterogeneous combination of seven different stories that lacks a cohesive unity and is never interesting enough to be worth our time - and not even excellent directors like Pablo Trapero and Gaspar Noé are able to save this project from being dull and tiring.
