The Extraordinary Journey of Celeste Garcia (El viaje extraordinario de Celeste García) Reviews

What starts out as an absurd premise start to lose steam in the final act as the film focuses more on Celeste's inward journey of self-discovery - and less on the light satire of Cuban bureaucracy. Still, it's an utterly enjoyable ride.

Celeste García is a truly original and affectionately humorous take on the sci-fi genre. Instead of focusing on the actual space travel, the film foregrounds the very human emotions of those desperate to escape their mundane existence.
