Storyline

Havana 1957, "Sin Capital of the World" - Mafia run nightclubs, sex, drugs, booze and gambling. President Batista heads a dictatorship benefiting wealthy Yankee corporations; student radicals rally with the poor, and revolutionaries. Ruben Velez, a young cop believes in law and order where his fellow officers control the population with torture, intimidation, and murder. His partner, a dirty cop cold-bloodily murders a student and Velez's outrage is met with indifference and a warning: play the game or suffer the consequences. Juliana a beautiful Tropicana dancer identifies the corpse of a dancer whose murder Velez investigates. Juliana, a mobster's lover, feeds Velez inside information on the mob and its business---is she carrying out some elaborate game? Playing off the cop against the mob? Or is she falling in love with Velez. Written by Havana 57

Havana 57-Made by Canadians with Castro Cooperation for A Gullible Public.

As usual a Movie made in Castro Cuba,the usual propaganda,made by accomplices in the misery the regime has done in this case as usual foreigners who for some reason are under the spell of a ruined Country like Cuba and who of course rely on sources still in CastroCuba run by Castro goons.The movie is boring despite the name- calling of famous clubs the premise is the usual as in most so- called "histories" in books on Cuba and on film.While I am far from sympathetic to the Crook Batista,the fact remains that Cuba Pre- Castro was not only prospering but did better than the States(we didn't have segregation). The movie has errors such as the vehicles,the accessories for the vehicles and plain lazy when passing the malecon you see modern-day tourists in shorts and not 1957 Attire. The movie is slow,awful and typical of modern day Castro Cuba Apologists. You want to see a better movie see Lost City.
