Reviews

“A real 'winds of change' film, with traditional values crumbling in the heat of pre-revolutionary Cuba. Guinness is wonderful.”
– Robert Murphy, Time Out (London)

“Guinness is in above-average form, and Ernie Kovacs is wonderful as the callous but charming government official with a soft spot for Guinness's daughter.”
– Don Druker, Chicago Reader
