*Clandestinos (Living Dangerously) by Fernando Perez*

Satisfying as both a political thriller and a love story, this feature film
by Fernando Pérez is so naturally realized that it avoids being didactic
even as it commemorates events of the Cuban Revolution. Anti-Batista
activists move from one safe house to another, trying to elude a relentless
police commissioner. Their leader (Luis Alberto García), hardened by prison
and torture, is suspicious of nearly everyone but gradually falls for his
newest recruit, a headstrong idealist (Isabel Santos of El Benny). The
climactic rooftop chase is well choreographed and edited, and Edesio
Alejandro’s surging score recalls early Isaac Hayes. 103 minutes.

General audience discussion of film after screening with U of M Political
Science Professor August Nimtz, who is currently researching material for a
documentary film on the subject of the urban front of the Cuban Revolution.
Pracna on Main, next to the theater.
