Review

Perhaps it is a little problematic to call a documentary film. Although no actors appear in the film, and there isn´t anything what one may call ‘acting,’ this film is more rhythmical than your average musical, more heartwarming than a drama, and more realistic than any other documentary. Furthermore, in this film, there is no dialog, narration, or interviews. There is nothing to help us understand what happens in the film. Despite all this, viewers encounter absolutely no obstacle in understanding the life stories of many characters in the film: a man who lives with his son, a victim of downs syndrome, a woman whose husband is a drag queen, a doctor who has a part time job as a clown, a construction worker whose dream is to someday become a ballet dancer, and a railway worker who plays the sax on his off days. The film is only filled with the beautiful sound that the inhabitants of the city make, the city where the idealism of the Cuban revolution remains, the city where its inhabitants dream of things that are yet to be. The director Fernando Ferez, by cleverly intermixing sound and image, offers the viewers a chance to experience a ´watchable symphony.´
