    There’s a youthful energy running through Una Noche that threatens to overwhelm, from it’s sun-kissed first image to its final moments on the sands of the beach.

    The final, moving, nerve-wracking reels are all sea, sky, and desperation.

    Despite the bleak-ness of the situation, the film vibrates with color, noise, music, ferocious arguments (both serious and teasing), and eye-catching snapshots of everyday life in Havana.

    I admired the atmospherics in this film, a contrast to the Cuban government-sponsored journalistic forays I've read about. ("Look at the architecture and old cars! Sip the rum! Smoke the cigars!") This gives you a more gritty look at the Cuba that a lot of people still want to escape. But the acting is heavy on sincerity, lighter on skill. You will NOT be surprised to read that the director employed nonprofessionals. Also, the rather histrionic sexual subplots felt layered on for effect. It's nicely filmed, though, and engaging.
