This movie though sad and in many ways vulgar portrays what is really happening to the people in Cuba. These are second and third generation post war and it portrays how low Castro has brought the very same people he promised to have benefited. The island is dilapidated and the people are suffering. I have grown tired of some photographers showing their pictures and trying to portray the island as a paradise now. Surely the natural beauty of the beaches is there, but whas was a vibrant, well kept thriving island is now nothing but a place frozen in time! I know, I am Cuban, first generation and left Cuba with my parents in 1960 at the age of 16-1/2. Every country changes, but this one has changed for the absolute worst! Just wondering how the director was able to pull this off, given the censorship. Kudos for showing the sad truth!

This interesting and involving film was jointly submitted to the 2013 Seattle International Film Festival by Cuba and the United Kingdom (English captions). Directed by Lucy Mulloy, this movie has been honored at a variety of film festivals throughout the world, and has won numerous awards.

We find ourselves in Havana with some young adults, a young man and his twin sister, plus a gorgeous young man who works in the same restaurant as the male twin. Our handsome fellow dreams of returning to Miami to live with his father. It is interesting to view the city streets, we can tell that this place has seen better days....

We see these actors:
* Javier Núñez Florián is Elio, who expects his twin sister to stay in Havana with their mother. Elio is desperately in love with Raul, so he wants to help him reach Miami. It is, after all, only 90 miles away and surely he can cobble together something that can float that far.
* Anailín de la Rúa de la Torre is Lila, the twin sister. She is teased because she has dark hair on her arms, but she is indomitable. She has been inseparable from Elio since birth, but she can see that he has become fixated on Raul. She accepts that he is gay, but sticks to him like glue, nonetheless.
* Dariel Arrechaga is Raul, beautiful from any angle, this muy guapo hombre seduces any and all people in his path. He is certain Lila will fall for his charms and is willing to let Elio sell everything he owns to buy the materials they need for their little floating disaster.

By the time Elio has accumulated all of his materials, both he and Raul are on the wrong side of the law, so now it is no longer just their desire to go to Miami, it is essential!

It was an ok story-line-based movie however, the scenery, language, and acting was undoubtably right. It's a great movie to share non-Cubans friends to get a feel of what Cubans go through on a daily basis. Overall great movie.

This story explores the intimacies of family life against the backdrop of Havana, Cuba.
Beautiful cinematography and a great soundtrack transport you to the gritty underbelly of contemporary life.
The young actors are compelling in how they present this coming of age story.

This film, based on a true story, is the sad reality of many Cubans and Cuban families. This suffering is perpetrated by a regime 90 miles from U.S. shores. Don't expect a happy ending because the script of all movies filmed in Cuba have to be approved by the regime and their censors would not allow this to happen.

UNA NOCHE. It is a movie about Cuba. I will not say that it is a political statement. The movie reflects the painful life style that 90% of the Cuban people live now days thanks to the Castro's government." Hope" is a word that doesn't exist in the Cubans life. The movie is sad. Desperation among the new generations of Cuban increases everyday.
