Life is to Whistle (La Vida es (Silbar)

Cuban filmmaker Fernando Pérez crafts this lyrical look at life in modern-day Havana. An 18-year-old orphan narrates the stories of three loners, all looking for happiness. A promiscuous dancer makes a pact with God; a young musician searches for his long-lost mother; an honest nurse suffers from an ailment that causes her to faint when she hears the word "sex." Sunny, touching and loaded with boisterous humor, Pérez' film proves that Cuban cinema is still alive and well. In Spanish with English subtitles. 106 minutes
