Movie Info

A Cuban exile searches for his long-lost mother, as well as his cultural heritage, in this drama. Roberto Delgado (Jorge Perugorria) is a college professor living in Miami who was born in Cuba; Roberto and his father fled Cuba shortly before the final stages of the revolution, and he grew up believing that his mother Carmen abandoned the family rather than join them in the United States. After 32 years in America, Roberto has developed a gnawing curiosity about Carmen, the mother he hasn't seen in over three decades, and decides to take a vacation in Cuba in hopes of finding her. In Havana, Roberto tracks down his cousin, Pilar (Isabel Santos), who informs him that his father actually kidnapped him, taking him to the United States against his mother's wishes, and that Carmen was so distraught by the loss of her child that she ended up in a mental institution. With Pilar's help, Roberto sets out to find his mother, with taxi driver Antonio (Mario Limonta) as their guide and driver, though it sometimes seems as if the harder they look for Carmen, the father away she seems to get. Honey for Oshun was the first Cuban production shot on digital video equipment; it received its North American premier at the 2001 Montreal Film Festival, and was later shown in competition at the 2002 Sundance Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Honey for Oshun


Video quality is mediocre, and some subtitles are lost in the white background, but this movie was still an interesting watch. The acting was decent, and it had a decent storyline. It really dragged, however, during certain parts. Could have been much better...
