Life is to Whistle

Life is to Whistle Lowest new price: $8.45
Lowest used price: $2.49
List price: $13.42

A love letter from the Cuban director to his own country, this film is seen through the eyes of 18 year-old Bebe, who guides the viewer through the romantic mishaps of three characters whose lives intersect on the Day of Santa Barbara at the end of the century.

Where's Cuba? Fernando Perez's colorful tapestry of fantasy and street realism is a troubled love letter to Cuba. Fisherman and musician Luis Alberto Garcia is an abandoned child searching for his mother (aptly named Cuba) in an allegorical journey. He's just one of Perez's orphans, along with a social worker who faints every time she hears the word "sex" and a passionate ballet dancer who promises God her celibacy if she can get the role of Giselle and then falls for her new partner. The metaphorical tales have a tendency to become so abstract they almost dissolve, but the heady sex and throbbing music power it through to the imaginative and sweet climax with magic and color and earthy eroticism. If he never gets an answer to his question, his lush portrait at least sketches his mother country's identity crisis. --Sean Axmaker
