Havana, Cuba, 1979. Flamboyantly gay artist Diego (Jorge Perugorría) attempts to seduce the straight and strait-laced David, an idealistic young communist, and fails dismally. But David conspires to become friends with Diego so he can monitor the artist's subversive life for the state. As Diego and David discuss politics, individuality and personal expression in Castro's Cuba, a genuine friendship develops between the two. But can it last? Strawberry and Chocolate became an instant hit when it was released, and has become a classic of Cuban cinema due to its charming and authentic exploration of a connection between two people under historical circumstances that seem levelled against them.

It asked the right kind of questions and treaded carefully around the more sensitive topics. I left feeling slightly repulsed but "lovin' it" nonetheless.

A sequel is supposed to take established characters and have them grow, but nothing like that happened in this movie. Especially egregious is an entire sequence devoted to Bridget learning perspective in a Thai prison, a perspective that could have been learned in half the time and without the discomfort of having it seem all too real. Still, there are laughs, and Zellweger and Grant turn in very watchable performances. It's just that characters like Darcy (in these movies or in Pride and Prejudice) are only tolerable for one movie at a time.

Pure class.

Drew S (au) wrote: This is perhaps the finest example of pre-Hayes Code storytelling at its best. A young former prostitute, Lily (nicknamed Baby Face) moves from a hard knocks life working in a shipyard bar moving to a large city presumably New York. She picks a high rise office building telling her friend, "I'm going to work in that building." Floor by floor Lily sleeps her way to the top of the building, floor by floor. The sheer genius lies in the double entendres and implied sexual encounters without showing the action. Something many of today's filmmakers avoid by just going with explicit shots on the screen, leaving nothing to the viewers imagination.
