“Fascinating! A beautiful, nostalgic film that is vibrantly peopled by four individuals living in ruined buildings in Havana. A theory of the ruins and what they represent is threaded through the film. Highly recommended!” — Educational Media Reviews Online

 “Havana is famous for the morbid charm of its flaking facades. The beauty of this city lies in the poetry of its ruins. They are far less poetic, however, for the people who inhabit them. Houses frequently collapse causing fatalities. The decay of the city and its living quarters is a continual source of both danger and shame for its residents... The film is a portrait of the inhabited ruins of Havana and their strange blend of magic and demolition and captures the final moments of these buildings before they're renovated - or simply collapse altogether.” — Munich Film Festival
