is an engaging film for being unpretentious - a drama is taken lightly. has with many funny moments.

An interesting sociopolitical satirical commentary in the form of Bunuel. Almost a cuban Animal Farm, this light-hearted comedy uses a messy bus terminal of uncertain escape as a backdrop for many transiting folks with different destinations, hopes and desires. the common dream sequence was nicely done, as were the funny sidetracks like feasting on spam, cats & lobsters...

dreams and reality often do not collide... but in desperate situations, perhaps a sweet dream can surface and present new opportunities. how many of us give in to the daily toil?

I loved this movie! I was engaged with the characters right from the start and surprised at the ending.

La liste de espera was broadcasted some weeks ago on belgian television. I'm so happy I didn't miss it, it's a very nice and touching movie. A very good critique of the failure of the Cuban system. Me gusto mucho!

This film, bizarrely, is really good. As a satirical piece, it has an uncanny ability to mix in light humour very well and craft a delightful movie with all the commercial elements and yet delve very well and in the most subtle but wonderful manner possible, the problems of Cuba in an intrinsic sense. This is my second movie from Cuba, after 'Memories of Underdevelopment' and what stands out is how Cuban films are really intelligent and unlike the direct criticism in American cinema, in here, we see this charm and destruction of elements that show the human kindred among us and display how working within our bailiwick is neither counter-constructive but instead is right. Really good. The allusion to Bunuel's "The Exterminating Angel" was wondrous too, especially as it nears the end and it hits well.

No me encanta, perro me gusta.
A very strange movie, but i liked the fact that i saw it when i did. There are some kinks that could of been worked out in the movie, but it's still a pretty good movie to see if ur up to it. I was surprised to some existentualist qualities in the film, and the ending is still hard to follow after rewinding it five times to understand what was going on. It has a lot of comedical satire, and in the end, that's what kills it.

Hilarious! Porukka on jumissa kuubalaisella linja-autoasemalla ja odottaa poispääsyä.

Funny, touching movie about a bunch of disparate people stuck at a bus stop in the middle of nowhere in Cuba. And it all makes sense in the end.

If you want to know the reality of Cuba and the dream it bring this movie is perfect. Me gusto mucho.

Magican realism in a movie, boundaries between reality and surreality are so thin!
July 28, 2007
Magico, surreale, ma non troppo distaccato dalla realt per diventare compleatmente onirico o di un buonismo eccessivo. Perch, alla fine, le persone possono essere buone, creare legami forti con sconosciuti, ma non dimenticano mai dove vanno e dove dovrebbero andare. Per chi crede che ogni tanto bisognerebbe prendere una direzione differente, o soltanto immaginarlo!
½ July 5, 2007
Veldig morsom og bra film, der alt foregr p en bussholdeplass. Hva kan skje nr bussen ikke kommer? Filmen skildere hvordan livet tar til og folk p holdeplassen blir kjent med hverandre og forandrer seg etter opplevelsen. Verd se.
