There are more misses than hits, and a week feels like a long time in Cuba.

Remarkably, not one of the seven stories takes a shrewd, or even Loachian view of the realities of living in Cuba.

The faded grandeur of the Hotel Nacional features prominently and cliches of ladyboys, cigars, daiquiris and rafts to Miami abound.

The gravest impediment is the bloated running time.

It's enough to justify the admission price, but only just. 7 Days? Is there a weekend package we might avail of?

Leaves you feeling that a mini-break or a long weekend might have been sufficient.

A pleasant couple of hours, even if feels like an extended advert for the rum company who paid for it.

7 Days in Havana feels like seven years, with no remission for good behaviour.

Outruns itself. We'll take 2 Days in Havana.

Even with six world-class directors, it all amounts to a pretty uninteresting collage of Cuban life.

Lively, beautifully shot anthology drama in which, inevitably, some sections are stronger than others, though it's also slightly too long, lacks depth and never really comes together in a satisfying fashion.

Varying in quality and in tone, these seven shorts don't do more than scratch the surface of life in Cuba's capital. They also steer well clear of any political comments.

Despite an impressive roll-call of talent, this seven-tale Cuba-set anthology never strays far from touristy clichés.

The seven films present a rich, vivid and pointedly non-stereotypical view of the energetic and diverse culture of the Cuban capital.

Audience Reviews for 7 Days in Havana

An irregular and heterogeneous combination of seven different stories, lacking a cohesive unity and never interesting enough to be worth our time - and not even excellent directors like Pablo Trapero and Gaspar Noé are able to save this project from being dull and tiring.
