Ultimos Días en la Habana (Last Days in Havana)

The melancholy Diego washes dishes in a Havana restaurant, hoping to migrate to the US, and cares for his childhood friend Miguel, who has AIDS. Diego’s quietness contrasts with the lively neighbours who share their lives in a place where privacy is almost impossible, especially when Miguel’s firebrand niece comes to stay with them. Despite Diego’s inscrutable quality, the film is gentle and moving.
