Movie Info

A group of Havana bohemians look for love in the drama La Vida Es Silbar. Bebe (Bebe Perez) is an 18-year-old living in Cuba who was raised in an orphanage along with her two best friends, petty thief Elpidio (Luis Alberto Garcia) and aspiring dancer Mariana (Claudia Rojas). Another of Bebe's pals is Julia (Coralia Veloz), who is so shy she faints when she hears the word "sex;" fortunately, she works in a retirement home and doesn't hear it very often. Bebe serves as our guide as we follow the romantic misadventures of her three friends. When Elpidio lifts the wallet of Chrissy (Isabel Santos), a tourist who has traveled to Havana via balloon; he finds himself intrigued and calls her, hoping to put a romance into motion. Mariana meets another dancer, attractive Ismael (Joan Manuel Reyes), and soon finds herself struggling to maintain her composure. And when Julia is sent to an analyst (Rolando Brito) to do something about her shyness, she finds herself becoming increasingly attracted to the doctor. Noted for its stylish visual sense, La Vida Es Silbar played several of the world's top film festivals in 1999, including the Sundance, Berlin, Munich and Karlovy Vary Film Festivals. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
