abstract
"A visceral, energizing look at contemporary Cuba, Bitter Sugar is an impassioned love story set against the political and economic tensions of Havana. Gustavo, an idealistic young communist with a glorified vision of Castro's regime, falls in love with Yolanda, a disenchanted dancer who longs to escape to Miami. However, Gustavo learns that love alone cannot sustain them in a city about to erupt and slowly awakens to the devastation around him. His rebellious musician brother injects himself with the AIDS virus in civil protest; his father realizes that he will earn more money as a barroom pianist in a tourist hotel than as a doctor ... [D]irectorLeon Icaso (El Super, Sugar Hill, Miami Vice) weaves a blazing tale of romantic and political passions amid the ruins of the Cuban Revolution"--Container.
