Movie Info

In the rural mountain region of Eastern Cuba, Andrés--a non-compliant gay writer in his fifties--resides after he has been blacklisted by the government for having "ideological problems". After a big event occurs, Santa--a country girl in her thirties who works in a farm--is assigned to watch over him and make sure he does not get out and make any public political statement. For three days in a row, Santa will sit in front of Andrés' hut and keep watch on him. Santa and Andrés are as close as it gets of being true opposites and are not meant to like each other. What they cannot imagine, however, is that they have more things in common than they expect.

Amores and Martínez convey a great deal via silence, their wounded physicality expressing far more than words.

"Santa & Andrés" begins as a film about separation and pain, but becomes a movie about reconciliation and healing.

With quiet precision, Lechuga charts Andrés's resilience and Santa's awakening, using a naturalistic visual style and sparse dialogue that reveals how these characters instinctively read between the lines.

Santa is particularly strong on the way that politics gets into people's heads and damages the relationships between them, even when they are far away from the political center.

Low-key treatment of a relationship between a gay man and a Communist woman will reward the patient.

An interesting but disappointingly irregular study of two people during the Cuban revolution in the 1980s. [Full review in Spanish]
