A sureness of touch, rich atmospherics and immense technical craft characterise this
hyper-stylised love story, about playwright Javier who finds himself curiously drawn to ugly duckling Luisita. Perez stays away from clichéd cinematic representations of 'exotic' Havana, and what we get instead is a city of cramped interiors with peeling walls and streets full of thick, curling smoke, where it's continually pouring down and yet, curiously, nobody carries umbrellas.
