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.

The film suffers greatly in making every single thing that happens pertain to a heavy-handed metaphorical symbol.
