Movie Info

The film is set at sunset on a terrace overlooking Havana. Five friends gather to celebrate the return of Amadeo after 16 years of exile. From dusk to dawn, they reminisce about their youth, the group they used to form, the faith they had in the future... but also their disillusionment.

Critic Reviews for Retour à Ithaque (Return to Ithaca)

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (3)

Return to Ithaca is a bracing and surprisingly vocal expression of angst and frustration by people torn between love for their country and the harsh letdown that resulted from their loyalty.

Overwritten and un-cinematic ...

Top Critic

Doesn't want for sensitivity, but overestimates viewers' investment in a quintet of prickly characters whose personal histories take the film's entire duration to assemble.

Top Critic

It is a bit stagey, but heartfelt and well acted.

August 24, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Reminisces, recriminations, rehashed old wounds, confessions, fall outs, reconciliation, and even a sing-along to a golden oldie. It's impossible not to think of this as a Cuban Big Chill.

"Return to Ithaca" gently expands our understanding of life within a society that, in contrast to our own, did not even pretend to cultivate the idea that its citizens were free.
