    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. Expand

    Moving performances from Una Noche's charismatic non-pro cast, Mulloy's keen eye for visual detail and stunning cinematography by Trevor Forrest and Shlomo Godder of Cuba's turquoise water exploding against the sea wall offer a compelling portrait.

    The depiction of Havana neither sugarcoats nor grunges-up the harsh reality. The movement intoxicates, but the situations are tough.

    Mulloy’s only other directing credit is for the documentary short “This Morning.” She brings a documentarian’s objective eye to Una Noche, yet the actors — non-professionals — convey exactly the emotions she is looking for.
