Movie Info

In this slice-of-life documentary, director Fernando Pérez chronicles the simple lives of various people living in Havana, Cuba, with minimal action and dialogue. Some of the subjects followed include: an old woman who makes her living selling peanuts on the street; a man who takes care of an elderly woman during the day and plays the saxophone at night; a doctor who aspires to be an actor; and a construction worker whose true passion is dancing ballet.

Critic Reviews for Havana Suite (Suite Habana)

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (4) | Fresh (5) | Rotten (2)

  • ... its most compelling images linger ...

    April 28, 2006 | Rating: 3/5
  • It's all pleasant enough, but the pretty pictures, languid pacing, and endless stretches of mood music eventually combine to soporific effect.

    April 25, 2006 | Full Review…
  • Aspires to the poetic but falls short because of a lack of dynamism.

    July 28, 2004
  • A portrait of people in a permanent state of waiting who -- with only one poignant exception -- refuse to let go of their dreams.

    February 5, 2004 | Rating: 3/4
  • Perez evokes a day in the life of 10 Habaneros as a symphony: his subjects are notes spread out across a music staff, rising and falling to the identity of a city.

    March 26, 2006 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • "Suite Habana" is both melancholy and hopeful and has one notable thing missing - there is never an image of Fidel Castro to be found anywhere.
