Movie Info

The lives of three end-of-the-millennium Cubans intersect on the Day of Santa Barbara (the African saint who is the ruler of destinies): Mariana, a ballerina, ponders breaking the vow of chastity she made in order to land the coveted role of Giselle; sex makes Julia neurotic; Elpidio is a musician who enjoys seducing gringa tourists; while Bebe, the narrator, takes us for a taxi ride along the streets of Havana.

Audience Reviews for La Vida es Silbar (Life Is to Whistle)

(** 1/2): [img]http://images.rottentomatoes.com/images/user/icons/icon13.gif[/img] Interesting Cuban art film that doesn't quite get my recommendation. The color and music of the film is vibrant but its style can only take it so far. The acting is okay but the film utilizies the breaking of the 4th dimension too much and becomes unfocused and distracting.
