Thoughts

Mulloy's storytelling and her characters draw you into the Cuban culture and the people's day to day life. She spent years in Havana to study the heart of the Cuban people to make the story looks real and while doing her homework she finds the lead actors from the street. It won many awards in the festivals and everyone likes it due to the thrill factor of the third act. Overall, it's a simple movie about three characters and the eager of what happens next to their actions keeps you attached to the story.
