Viva Cuba, by Juan Carlos Malberti (2005)

   A beautiful love and friendship story between a young boy and girl in Cuba. The boy's parents and girl's mother don't go along.

   Her mother wants to move with her abroad and sends a lettler to request permission to the father, who lives in the farthest point on this special island, employed as caretaker for the lighthouse.

   Facing the prospects of separation, they decide to packs their school backpacks and reach her father before the letter arives. This gives the audience the possibility to follow their adventures and admire the ladscape.

   Their beautiful cuban accent is delightful to hear. And it's great to see that even a movie for a wider audience as this one, don't fall into the trap of a simplistic ending.
