Life is to whistle

Fernando Pérez – Cuba – 1998

Restored version

CHF 19.90 / EUR 18.50

Sensual and vibrant, Life Is to Whistle weaves a tale of mystical realism surrounding three characters in an allegory of life in Castro's Cuba. Three orphans are torn between passion and repression as they act out the stories shared by a magical narrator.

«Its surrealist imagery, inspired by Magritte paintings, lends it a thread of visual zaniness... the throbbing music of Bola de Nieve and Benny More, which punctuates the film, makes its erotic pulse race even faste.» Stephen Holden, The New York Times
