Fidel: The Untold Story

Fidel: The Untold Story Lowest new price: $8.87
Lowest used price: $3.99
List price: $14.95
Brand: First Run Features
Model: 2251401

Whether dismissed as a relic or revered as a savior, all agree that Fidel Castro, nearing 44 years as the leader of Cuba, is one of the most influential and controversial figures of our time. Rarely are Americans given a chance to see inside the world of this socialist leader. The new documentary film FIDEL by Estela Bravo offers a unique opportunity to view the man through exclusive interviews with Castro himself, historians, public figures and close friends, with rare footage from the Cuban State archives.

Alice Walker, Harry Belafonte, and Sydney Pollack discuss Fidel as a person, while former and current US government figures including Arthur Schlesinger, Ramsey Clark, Wayne Smith, Congressman Charles Rangel and a former CIA agent offer political and historical perspectives on Castro and the long-standing US embargo against Cuba. Family members and close friends, including Nobel Prize-winning author Gabriel Garcia Marquez, offer a window into the rarely seen personal life of Fidel.

Bravo's camera captures Fidel Castro swimming with bodyguards, visiting his childhood home and school, joking with Nelson Mandela, Ted Turner and Muhammad Ali, meeting Elian Gonzalez, and celebrating his birthday with members of the Buena Vista Social Club. Juxtaposing the personal anecdotal with history of the Cuban revolution and the fight to survive the post-Soviet period, FIDEL tells a previously untold story and presents a new view of this compelling figure.

Nothing More (Nada +) – 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, this product will be manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media.'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

Life is to Whistle

Life is to Whistle Lowest new price: $8.45
Lowest used price: $4.99
List price: $19.93

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
