Editorial Reviews

For some he's a god. For others he's the devil incarnate. Fidel Castro is demystified in this black comedy whereby an internal plot leaves him stranded on a raft and eventually lands him, ironically, on the coast of Miami...like so many Cuban castaways who sought to escape him. Para algunos es un Dios, para otros el mismisimo Demonio. El polemico Fidel Castro es desmitificado en una tragicomedia en donde, victima de un atentado interno, sobrevive a un naufragio llegando ironicamente a las costa de Miami como uno as de tantos balseros.

Special Features

None.

The movie captures Fidel's culinary skills as well as his love for the game of baseball. Stranded in Miami, Castro pretends to be someone else. He befriends a young boy, who knows who he really is. His life among those who despise him, forces him to re-examine his life and the revolution. Brief nudity, language. Great movie if you want to learn Spanish swear words. The movie portrays Fidel as a flawed human being with lofty ideas and not as a monster with horns, which might turn off the Fidel haters.

A great concept that could have made for great satire and comedy. But, alas it did not happen. However for director, it may be a good start to a successful artistic career.

I especially liked the crime scene after the fire. It was done in a most realistic manner.

Lastly, buy the movie (it's almost impossible to rent) and make up your own mind.

The movie's premise is brilliant. A cantankerous, vicious, temperemental Fidel Castro is on a boat in Cuba, which gets blown up in an attempted coup. He survives on a raft, drifts with the current and wakes up in Florida. Naturally, he loses his beard and takes on another name and keeps trying to return to Cuba. The actor playing the dictator is excellent whenever the dictator, who is used to everyone being a bootlicker and jumping at his every whim, is contradicted or frustrated in his demands. If the movie had simply stayed with this story, it would have been perfect, but the problem is that a couple of parallel stories (a boy being bullied at school, infidelity between couples and an incoherent side story of arm smuggling) detract from the story. Even so, the movie is worth buying. It will give you a good laugh.

This could have been a much better film had the writing not been so lame. The idea of a shipwrecked Castro living in Miami could provide endles opportunities for storylines but the writers blew it here. This film was probably under-budgeted hence the b grade quality of the film.

It is mostly in English, but when they speak Spanish - English subtitles appear, so it is all good.
