Completely disappointing film. Even the characters played by excellent Cuban actors lacked strength.
Clumsy direction and script.
I'm still wondering why the title includes the name of Havana?

Curious. Clumsy propaganda aimed at discouraging emigration from Cuba, painting those who have left as variously: vapid, selfish, grasping, vulgar, naive. The acting is awful and there is little to recommend it apart from the glimpse it provides into the subtext for film making in the Cuba of nearly 20 years ago. The situations are unrealistic and the dialogue silly.
