Reinaldo is a teenage boy who recently escaped from a penitentiary unit and sets on a journey back home to Havana. Nostalgia, rum, and his sense of humor are the only travel mates he has, until he meets Marga.

Panorama / Careers

The King of Havana must have one of the most terrible beginnings ever filmed; however, this series of tragic events is shown at a fast pace and without any kind of sensationalism. There’s sex (lots of it, and uninhibited), violence (sometimes), theft (a few) and even a possibly magical ritual; all of this in the marginal city announced in the title. While this happens, an energetic film about antiheroes takes place, in a territory where there’s no time to think about past misfortune and very few chances of planning a future. The film’s merit lies on convincing us that, even in those spaces, there’s place for temporary moments of luminosity. HS
