Outruns itself. We'll take 2 Days in Havana.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
Shaun Munro
What Culture
July 4, 2012
Even with six world-class directors, it all amounts to a pretty uninteresting collage of Cuban life.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
Carmen Gray

Despite an impressive roll-call of talent, this seven-tale Cuba-set anthology never strays far from touristy clichés.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

Remarkably, not one of the seven stories takes a shrewd, or even Loachian view of the realities of living in Cuba.
Allan Hunter
Daily Express (UK)

Leaves you feeling that a mini-break or a long weekend might have been sufficient.

There are more misses than hits, and a week feels like a long time in Cuba.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

7 Days in Havana feels like seven years, with no remission for good behaviour.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

Observer (UK)

The faded grandeur of the Hotel Nacional features prominently and cliches of ladyboys, cigars, daiquiris and rafts to Miami abound.
Tara Brady
Irish Times
July 6, 2012
It's enough to justify the admission price, but only just. 7 Days? Is there a weekend package we might avail of?
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
Miles Fielder
The List
June 14, 2012
The seven films present a rich, vivid and pointedly non-stereotypical view of the energetic and diverse culture of the Cuban capital.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
Tim Robey
Daily Telegraph (UK)

The gravest impediment is the bloated running time.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
Andrew Pulver
Guardian
July 5, 2012
A pleasant couple of hours, even if feels like an extended advert for the rum company who paid for it.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

Lively, beautifully shot anthology drama in which, inevitably, some sections are stronger than others, though it's also slightly too long, lacks depth and never really comes together in a satisfying fashion.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

Varying in quality and in tone, these seven shorts don't do more than scratch the surface of life in Cuba's capital. They also steer well clear of any political comments.
