Product Description

Reiner and Yosvani are best friends and soccer mates. In order to support his mother, wife and baby, Reiner prostitutes himself to older male foriegners. While the shy Yosvani is reluctantly engaged to a girl and lives with her and her bombastic loan shark father. After sharing a passionate kiss at a nightclub, the two soon succumb to their desires, followed by a lusty rooftop encounter where they quickly fall hard for one another. But as their love intensifies, the challenge is not with them but with the unforgiving outside world they exist in...a world they so desperately want to escape from.

Format: DVD
Cuba is not a good place to be gay apparently and this film attempts to throw light on some of the issues. Reinier is a rent boy by night and plays soccer by day - hoping to be noticed by the big team scouts. He has a young wife and baby and also supports the extended family - he also likes a bit of a gamble and is not very good at it.

Then there is Yosvani who has married a rich girl whose father is a kind of fashion consultant and loan shark thug. The two boys meet and get it on in a very genuine way. But as I said Cuba is not uber gay friendly and they have a rocky road ahead if they want to make it work.

This is a really well made and acted film. The subject has been done quite a few times before but this still has a freshness and a vibrancy to be able to carve its own niche. In Spanish with very good sub titles and a run time of around 94 mins. This is from Director Antonio Hens who also brought us the rather good `Clandestinos' way back in 2007. He has made another solid film that has already garnered a lot of positive attention and will be a great addition to anyone's gay film collection.

Format: DVD
Set in the slims of Havana, Reiner and Yosvani are good friends who find themselves attracted to each other. This is a surprise to both, since Reiner (a promising amateur soccer player) is married and has a child, while Yosvani is engaged to a girl and works for her loanshark father. Reiner supports his wife, child and her mother by selling sexual favors to older men, although he doesn't consider himself to be gay. Secrecy, shame, fear of violence and a gambling addiction all add to their problems, as they try to support each other, even as they are constantly pulled apart.

Not exactly an original concept for a film, but the difference here is that it is done well, with actors (both the couple and supporting players) who show real emotion and make the most of the storyline. Simulated sexual activity would equal a heavy R rating. I'd give it four stars out of five.

Beautiful movie; I found very close to reality, when two young begin to engage sentimentally. We see as poverty leads to the young to prostitution by money; it is also a window to the poverty that exists in Cuba. I really like foreign films because they give me the opportunity to admire the beauty of each country.
Es hablada en español, y aunque es mi lengua madre, hay que tener presente que cada país latino tiene su propio acento, y a mi en lo personal me resultaba difícil entender algunos dialogos de los actores, porque hablan muy de prisa, pero aún así disfrute mucho la pelicula, y me ayudaban los subtitulos en inglés para completar las ideas de lo que no entendia.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
"The Last Match" could (and *should*) have been a real blockbuster in the history of gay filmmaking, but chose instead to waste too much time plodding somewhat disjointedly along a seedy path, featuring Cuba's dreary ghettos and unsavory inhabitants (admittedly essential to the drama), when far greater focus should have been given to the suppressed yearnings and (perhaps in flashbacks) early childhoods of the two protagonists.

In any event, the acting (at least for this type of film) was appreciably above average and, much to its credit, one does come away with an indelible awareness of the anguish and cruelty ambiguously heterosexual males are made to suffer in a double-edged society, where "deviant," clandestine carryings-on between two men are just barely permissible, so long as an unyielding veneer of machismo is strictly maintained in the presence of one's peers.

Despite some directorial flaws and the film's (almost-foreseeable-from-the-start) tragic ending, "The Last Match" was an affecting and positive contribution to the gay genre, falling slightly short of the mark.

Format: DVD
This gritty film tells the story of two young Cuban men who fall in love in the slums of Havana. As with any love story, complications immediately arise threatening the relationship. One loves more, while the other is conflicted between love and the ticket to a better life that his soccer prowess may bring.

***SPOILER ALERT***
At least half of the appeal of "The Last Match" has less to do with the specifics of the story than it does with the insight it casually offers about life in Cuba. The tale of two young men who develop a physical attraction for each other, the movie is also a window into some conditions and attitudes present in Cuban life, a world barred to most Americans because of travel restrictions between the two countries.
Then again, the movie was actually filmed in Puerto Rico, so maybe what we're seeing here is more like an educated guess.
In "The Last Match," the people live in poverty, but everyone they know is poor, so poverty has a different atmosphere than it does in the United States. On several occasions in the film, you see men showering. But the shower isn't a real shower, but a basin of some kind and a plastic cup used to pour water over one's head.
The two protagonists, who know each other from playing soccer in the neighborhood, are young men barely getting by, who seem to take in stride having to do some extreme things for money. Yosvani (Milton Garcia) is a sensitive guy who works as a strong-arm man for his future father-in-law, a black marketeer and loan shark. And Reinier (Reinier Diaz) supports his wife and mother-in-law by working as a male prostitute, even though he insists that he isn't gay.
In a moment that shows how morals can give way to expediency, there's a grotesque scene in which Reinier's mother-in-law fawns all over one of Reinier's male clients. She wants to make a good impression on the man, so he'll want to continue having sex with her son-in-law! It's pretty twisted, but that's how it is when people are desperate.
