    Havana, the center of Cuba. A middle-aged Miguel is waiting for a US visa. He washes dishes in a restaurant and desires a new life in New York, but his visa process is arduous. Miguel´s gay roommate Diego, on the other hand, is sick with AIDS. What choices would the two make at their life turning point? Though the two are friends, Miguel decides to flee when Diego chooses the opposite. What Cuban veteran director Fernando Perez is trying to portray is a life in Cuba after the death of ‘Fidel Castro’, once a symbol of idealism. The two seem discouraged. They are tormented with life. With a rather tragic undertone, this comedy draws the theme of friendship in Havana, a city of imminent significant change. Last Days in Havana is a film that focuses more on the nuanced scenes than just the story with some truly touching scenes between the two friends. [JANG Byungwon]
