Summary:
Five restored classic films from Cuba.
Dolce sillas (The twelve chairs): A rich woman decides, before dying, to hide the family jewels under a chair lining. An ex-proprietor and his ex-driver find this out and undertake a desperate search for the treasure, which gives rise to amusing situations and incredible adventures.
Aventuras de Juan Quin Quin (The adventures of Juan Quin Quin): A peasant farmer becomes a soldier in the Cuban revolution in this offbeat adventure comedy. His healthy cynicism towards the police, wealthy landlords, and the government serves him well after he joins up with a female guerilla. He rises to become a lieutenant as he waits for the signal for the rebellion to begin.
Un hombre de éxito (A successful man): Cuba's history before the Revolution is chronicled through the story of two brothers, one a revolutionary man of action, the other an unscrupulous politician trying to steer a treacherous middle path between opposing political ideas.
Cecilia: In 1830 Cuba, the son of a rich colonial family falls in love with a proud, beautiful but poor mulatto girl. His father, however, wants him to marry a woman from his own social class.
Amada: Set in Havana in 1914, as World War I begins. Amada, a young conservative bourgeois woman unhappily married to an ambitious politician, and tied to obsolete values, falls passionately in love with her cousin Marcial, a young nonconformist who tries unsuccessfully to shake her out of her traditionalism with tragic results.
