Abstract:

"A visceral, energizing look at contemporary Cuba, Bitter Sugar is an impassioned love story set against the political and economic tensions of Havana.

However, Gustavo learns that love alone cannot sustain them in a city about to erupt and slowly awakens to the devastation around him. His rebellious musician brother injects himself with the AIDS virus in civil protest; his father realizes that he will earn more money as a barroom pianist in a tourist hotel than as a doctor ... [D]irectorLeon Icaso (El Super, Sugar Hill, Miami Vice) weaves a blazing tale of romantic and political passions amid the ruins of the Cuban Revolution"--Container.
