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?

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.
