It is no secret that most people today have never had the opportunity to eat, or even have seen Cuban food. This documentary highlights how Cubans are unique as far as the food they consume. It is the story of three young Cuban men who are currently eating Cuban food for the first time. It is not simply about food, but what they have to go through to eat Cuban food. I liked this documentary because I feel the Cuban people are a very unusual people. They are quite open to people of all ethnicities. However, when I watch this documentary, I am surprised to learn that the film also discusses that the majority of the people in Cuba are of European descent. This is why the majority of the film is focused on foreign food. The film goes on to talk about the other things that people of different ethnicities do to satisfy their cravings, which include crime, prostitution, bribery, and even the sacrifice of children. The film also takes time to show the things the people of the country do for fun. The people of Cuba like to have fun. They love to dance, to watch sports, and enjoy their neighbors. It is amazing to me that this is a country which is not going to change a thing as the people grow older. These are people who love to eat, and when they grow older, the food they love to eat will not be available in the country. My advice is to be open to this country, and learn about what they eat, because this documentary tells you that the Cubans will always be a country that they will be able to eat. This documentary also highlights what the people of Cuba eat, and what they think about. One thing I noticed about this documentary is that the filmmaker and the film crew do a great job in showing the beauty of Cuba. I think this documentary is worth seeing.

Babi set a new standard for the fashion industry in Cuba. Like Cuban industry in general, he worked with the local government to take his business to the world. He created his own unique style, and therefore the world wanted it. Along the way he met many beautiful women and gave them to the media. The good times lasted until the communists took power. You know, people get old, you get old, and the revolution happened, so he had to leave Cuba. As a result, many of his women died because of the fact they would have to go to the United States for any surgery. However, he just had to wait until he could find a new job in the United States. In my opinion, he left Cuba for the best of the best. Here he became a very successful businessman and art collector. He built a lifestyle that he can live in peace with his family and go to school and university. When he came to the United States, he lived in a beautiful house, and he taught many children at a school. The beautiful girls like Ezequiel Mena, Alayna Borrego, and another Spanish lady, had several children, and the mother of the girls, Maria Cruz, sent her to Cuba. In Cuba, Maria Cruz made a life of her own. She loved her work and her children, and she had no plans to leave Cuba. At the end of the movie, all that seems to be a distant memory. You can see that the girls still talk to her, and the mother still holds a warm heart for her. The art collector talks to her, and shows her the old museum that he purchased in Paris, and the pictures of Cuban art that he found. All this happened before the revolution. It shows the beauty of Cuba and the memories that people of that country have for her. "There was a time when life was beautiful," said to the mother of the Cuban girl. "But times have changed."

I saw this film at the Los Angeles International Film Festival. It has the most complex theme of the entire festival, and yet it really is a film about food. I thought the filmmakers had done an excellent job of bringing together those who have spent a lifetime cooking Cuban food and those who have no idea what it is. They have really highlighted the authentic, small, family-run restaurant in West L.A. with its warm hospitality and passion for the arts. The camera is constantly pointing in the back door of the house, which is a great metaphor for the values of the business and its "go-to" for delivery of authentic Cuban food to the world. For those who are not familiar with Cuban food, the film really works. The four main characters (among many others) really have a lot to say, and in the end they even acknowledged that it's their families who have been the most supportive in welcoming them back to the family business. And of course they're doing it in a very honest way and without bias. The filming is well done and the dialog is wonderful. I think they really did a great job bringing this story to the audience. I liked how they seemed to both highlight the positive elements and keep the camera on the family. Overall, it's a very beautiful and powerful film that I think will be an eye-opener for many people who aren't already familiar with Cuban food. Even if you're not familiar with Cuban food, you'll find plenty of inspiration in the film. This is a film that will keep you wanting more. I think it is worth watching.

I enjoyed the documentaries "Lunch Box: Finding the Passion of Food" and "The Great Food Fight: "Tasty, Healthy Food Now." These films have a more factual feel than these two and also were more entertaining, so I would highly recommend them. However, I do not like to have to suspend my disbelief or put down my thoughts on anything I watch. I could not bring myself to believe these documentaries would be true. The first documentary is about a family in Cuba who discovered a beautiful variety of plant life and sent their son to Cuba. They then take their boy to a zoo. While they are there, one of the animals, a guinea pig, attacks them and bites their son. The boy is thrown to the ground and some of the dirt from the dirt pit is scattered over the boy. The boy is then picked up and the father, a great chef, goes home to find out what happened. The father is of course very upset, especially since he has now given up his career in the restaurant to teach his son. In order to take his son, he has to go to Cuba and eat fresh food. This documentary had an easy to follow narrative that was very entertaining. The mother was very upset and was very open to the father telling her about his life and his life with his son. He also was very open to the father explaining his belief that there was a great battle going on that people had never heard about. The son, after spending time in Cuba, is able to find out the story of his father. I also thought that the director did a very good job of presenting the information in a manner that was simple and straightforward. I felt that the documentary did a good job of making sure the story was kept simple and concise. The director did a very good job in doing this. I also found this documentary to be a good example of how documentaries can be made and how it is important to not be critical of the documentary. One of the problems with these two films is that they have such large audiences and people can easily get lost in the information and the messages that are presented in these films. They are very easy to fall into a trap of thinking that you know everything about something when in reality you don't. I have read some of the reviews that criticize the director for his biased opinions. I have to say that the director was very straightforward and honest. He did not ask for permission to make this film. The film was made with no money or money from other sources. This is just one example of how the director did an excellent job of presenting the information and leaving the audience with a good conclusion. The director was able to present this information in a way that left us with a clear sense

What exactly is it about the Cuban economy that makes it such a tough place for the average guy to make a living? If you haven't been to Cuba yet, the government still seems very much in control. The environment is so harsh, the language so harsh, and the people so stupid that it's just hard to imagine how anyone can make a living here. However, when you get past all the rough stuff, there is a certain sweet spot to the island, and the food is phenomenal. However, this documentary wasn't exactly about Cuba. It was about two food critics who met in the States and decided to do a sort of tasting tour of Cuba. You see, a lot of people are so sick of all the advertising and hype around Cuba that they want to experience the real deal. The one guy I'm referring to is Michael Pollan, a famous author and journalist who has been living in Cuba for a while now. The problem with this is that Pollan's taste buds are pretty good. He was happy to share his experiences and his love for the food. However, I think that as a documentary it was a little too straightforward. A lot of people were just as pissed off about the country, and it's hard to do anything but tell them to be patient. The same goes for those of you who are already there. The irony of course is that Cuba is, by far, the most expensive place in the world to live. When I was in Cuba I learned that you can eat a hamburger for 2 dollars, and you have to spend more than $1000 to see a wedding in Havana. There is a high degree of scarcity in the economy, and when you spend your money, you can be sure that the local residents won't have the money left over to pay your bills, and so on. I am from New Jersey, and I went to Cuba with my sister this year and we spent a lot of the trip in Havana. The total price of my time was close to $2000. Still, I was very grateful that I got to experience Cuba for myself. This documentary really has a good message. It's not to say that Cuba sucks, but it's really hard to make a living in Cuba. If you don't live in the country, and you just happen to live in the US, chances are that you won't have any experience of the country, because most of the people I've met have never been to Cuba. There is a certain culture that you have to live up to. To those of us who have been there, that's where the positives are, and that's where the positives are in the film. There is no place like it on earth. There is a lot of

This documentary follows the artisans at Juan Ospana, a traditional Cuban food plant nursery in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The village is relatively close to downtown and a scenic drive. The filmmakers tour the village, stopping at different locations, watching the craftsmen demonstrate their craft and feeding them food, so they can see what makes them different. The food is very good. I especially like the salsas with the sea salt and the guacamole. There is some bias about the salsas. There is also the food grown by people in the village and the lack of education in Cuba is clear. They talk about the differences between the different types of food grown by different people. One woman says that the different types of people and the different cultures produced different food and thus different food styles and there is also the argument about how different people eat differently. The discussion about this is a great education. The footage is good, but it is mostly from the 1970s and 1980s and not recent. The women talk about their families and the history of the village. I like the footage of the family talking about the difference between how they use the word "food" to describe food, how different people use different words to describe food, and how they have different culture. Some of the women also talk about the difference between Spanish and Cuban food. The village leader says that she is proud that the family has been using her traditional recipes for the past five generations. I also like the discussion of the tradition of storing food. The women have talked about different ways that they store food and I like the discussion of the differences in how they store food. I also like that they talked about the differences in the local people's eating habits and what it means for the community. The Spanish woman in the village also says that she has been eating this way since she was a child. She says that the foods are fresher and there is less fat in the food. Some of the women have told how they came to the tradition of storing food. Some women have talked about how the community is divided and that they don't agree about the things that have been happening in the community. Some of the women have also talked about how they have been able to survive in the community with all the problems. The women have also talked about their dreams and how they have been able to accomplish their dreams. The Spanish women have said that it's easier to keep the family together because there are so many problems that have been happening in the community. There is a lot of love in the village, but the conflict is still there. There are a lot of conflicts in the village because of differences between different people and cultures. I liked the food and the women's talk and some
