Strawberry and Chocolate
Length:110 min.

Tomas Gutierrez Alea, one of Cuba's major directors, presents a warm, sentimental film which is at once both funny and compassionate. Presented in the US by Robert Redford and acclaimed at the Telluride, Toronto and New York Film Festivals, Alea's social comedy centers itself on the deep friendship that develops in contemporary Cuba between a straight political-science student and a repressed gay artist. A wonderfully gratifying film experience, the stinging comedy of sex and politics adroitly exposes the lives of two very different people with friendly similarities.
