$3 film - Guantanamera(CC)



Guantanamera is a 1995 satirical road film from Cuba.

A Spanish language film with English subtitles.
It is part of the 9th Latin American Film Festival.

The film is named after the song Guantanamera (girl from Guantánamo) – perhaps the best known Cuban song and that country's most noted patriotic song.

When Aunt Yoyita dies during a visit to Gina in Guantánamo, Gina, along with Yoyita's childhood sweetheart, the aging Cándido, must take the body to Havana.
To their annoyance, Gina's overbearing husband Adolfo, a punctilious undertaker with political ambitions, takes charge of the journey, including several transfers along the way between hearses.
On the road, they keep crossing paths with Mariano, a playboy trucker with a woman at every way station. He and Gina recognize each other.
He was her student and wrote to her, expressing he loved her, then dropped out of school in embarrassment. Before they reach Havana, Gina realizes she can choose between Adolfo and Mariano.
