Filmed during the heyday of the nation's revolution, four beautiful vignettes set in pre-Castro Cuba dramatize the need for insurrection, idealizing hardworking but exploited peasants and Fidel Castro's staunch, freedom-loving revolutionaries. Although this landmark, politically charged film (which wasn't released in the United States until 1995) hammers home a one-sided sentiment, it's masterful filmmaking nonetheless.
