REVIEWS

Review by anonymous (posted on 1-Jul-2006)

I have just finished watching Before Night Falls (in New Zealand). I found Javier Bardem's acting truly mesmerising. He held the film in the palm of his hand. Thank you for bringing to me the persecution of people that do not fit the mold in a political regime. You have portrayed the person, the era perfectly. I readily admit I did not know much about Fidel Castro's land and the way in which it was run, and this film has brought home to me that I am very lucky to have been brought up in England. Javier Bardem is a magnificant actor and held me enthralled.
