  1. Mambí

    Mambí

    CUBA 1898. La guerra cambió su vida, el amor cambió su destino. Carlos Fuentes encabeza el reparto de Mambi. Es Goyo, un joven jornalero canario al que obligan a alistarse en el ejército para luchar contra los mambises, guerrilleros independentistas, levantados en armas contra España. Goyo es uno de los miles de jóvenes de baja extracción social que, a finales de siglo, fueron reclutados a la fuerza y condenados a pelear hasta la muerte en una isla tan lejana como bella. La historia de Goyo es la de un desertor, pero podría ser la de cualquiera de los isleños - como se conoce a los emigrantes canarios - que durante el siglo XIX convirtieron a Cuba en el destino preferido de su diáspora. Muchos de estos isleños acabarían integrándose con la población criolla, fomentando un nuevo mestizaje y defendiendo los intereses de Cuba frente a la colonia. A través de los protagonistas de uno y otro bando, Mambi la doble cara de un espejo con intereses irreconciliables: España, en el ocaso de su imperio; Cuba, en el inicio de su independencia, y Estados Unidos, el país que, a la postre, sacaría más beneficio de un conflicto que espoleó y que le era ajeno. La película de Teodoro y Santiago Ríos no es solo una recreación histórica. Aunque la avala una cuidada ambientación, Mambi es, en palabras de sus directores, una película de antihéroes vapuleados por las situaciones y los acontecimientos; una historia de amor y aventuras y una reflexión sobre el destino del hombre en épocas de crisis, precisamente cuando se ponen a prueba los valores humanos.

    This movie, created by Santiago Ríos, Carlos Fuentes and Carlos Acosta-Milian, scores 7.3 on IMDb.

Alsino tries to be a child, climbing trees with a girl, looking through his grandfather's trunk of mementos and trying to fly; he goes to town to sell a saddle, has his first drink and is taken to a brothel.
