Movie Info

Romantic and super sexy, this drama concerns an intense love affair between two hitherto heterosexual young men in the slums of Havana (shot in Puerto Rico.) Reiner and Yosvani are best friends and soccer mates. Handsome Reinier, in order to support his mother, wife and baby, prostitutes himself to older male foreigners, while the shy Yosvani is reluctantly engaged to a girl and lives with her bombastic loan shark father. After a furtive kiss at a nightclub, the two young men, barely containing their pent-up desire, follow-up with a lusty roof top encounter, where they quickly fall hard for one another. And as their love intensifies, the challenge is not between them, but with the unforgiving outside world... a world they so desperately want to escape from. The two leads, Reinier Diaz and Milton García, deliver charismatic and captivating performances as the sexually-charged lovers in this unforgettable drama by director Antonio Hens (Clandestinos). (c)

Critic Reviews for The Last Match

All Critics (2) | Top Critics (2)

The characters of the men don't deepen. Instead, the movie loses its internal quality and becomes a fairly predictable thriller about being gay in Cuba.

Top Critic

A superficial take on a fascinating cultural hypocrisy, doused in sudsy melodrama and wobbly acting.

Audience Reviews for The Last Match

½

Maybe because of different culture, Latin American Cinema always carries with certain rawness/crudeness however.
