Product Description

Nothing More (Nada +) – Amazon.com Exclusive

Juan Carlos Cremata Malberti's Nothing More is a remarkable debut feature that explores the repressive, crippling political and social aspects of today's Cuba while turning upside down all our comfortably cliched expectations about the U.S.'s island neighbor.

Carla is a young postal worker who dreams of joining her parents in Miami even as she enlivens her own drab existence by opening and rewriting the very letters she is responsible for processing. Intermittently bursting into song and cleverly mimicking various cinematic styles, the film is hilarious as well as heartbreaking.

"Cuba's Answer to Amelie!" -Miami Herald

"Charming, imaginative!" –Telerama

Nothing More is an official selection of the prestigious, award-winning Global Lens Collection presented by the Global Film Initiative. In Spanish with English subtitles.

When sold by Amazon.com, this product will be manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

Bottle-blonde Cuban pixie Carla (Thais Valdés) has worked at the post office for five years. It isn't a friendly place and she's lonely (her family lives in the US). When she accidentally damages a piece of mail, she recreates the missive in her own words. It's a love letter from a student to a professor and Carla helps bring them together. Then she opens and rewrites other letters, so that their meanings become more clear (sure, it's illegal, but it gives her life purpose). Along the way, she finds love with Christian Bale-lookalike César (Nacho Lugo). Set in Havana, the award-winning Nada+, or Nada Mas ("nothing more"), is shot in eye-catching black and white with dabs of luminous color and touches of stop-motion animation. Though the secondary cast overacts wildly at times, writer/director Juan Carlos Cremata Malberti's feature debut reveals a keen eye and a vivid imagination. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

If you like independent films you will love this one. It's creative and fun. Don't let the fact that it's filmed in black and white discourage you from watching. Color is strategically inserted into the scenes to plunge you further into the neurotic world of Carla's postal obsession. For those of us who are prohibited from travelling to Cuba, you'll enjoy the forbidden scenery of Havana. If you liked the french film "Amelie," you'll love this movie!

What attracted me to this film, I do not really know. It was on the Spanish material shelf at the library, and I checked it out just to see what it was about. I'm glad I did: It was excellent!

In regards to the reviewer from NY disregard. This is a beautiful film that offers an independent and refreshing look at romance and compassion in a world filled with negativity. The "odd use of colors" and "overacting" is intentional and most likely done to capture the style of Latin American magical realism writers.

Yes, a bit like Amélie in terms of creating an unusual world of imagination, adventure and puckishness. However, I also liken her to the Jean Seberg character in Breathless regarding appearance, mannerisms and adventurous spirit.

The world of work is a reality of existence in spite of its quirks. Love, when honestly acknowledged, delivers strength. Fantasy and vaudevillian shenanigans fade with an ending more thoughtful than one might expect.
