The forbidden tropical paradise of Havana is explored in director Antonio Hens’ The Last Match, his long-await follow-up to Clandestinos, will be making its domestic DVD debut from Canteen Outlaws on July 8.
In the socialist utopia of Cuba we are introduced to Reiner (Reinier Diaz), married to Lludimila (Jenifer Rodríguez), but who brings in extra cash by prostituting himself to cash-flush tourists. His mother-in-law, Teresa (Mirta Ibarra), views his activities as an escape route — her grand plan is for him to hook a Spaniard, marry him in Spain, and then send for his family (that would be her and her daughter).
Her plan might not be grounded in reality, but desperate times can sometimes call for “creative” solutions.
Nearby is Yosvani (Milton Garcia), a kept man living with his fiancée and his would-be father-in-law, Silvano (Luis Alberto Garcia), a “businessman” of sorts.
He’s not happy with the arrangement, but crossing Silvano could be a deadly decision. His business dealings are definitely outside the law.
What Reiner and Yosvani share in common is soccer, where they meet at the local club … and things develop between them that will both challenge and change their lives.
In Spanish with English subtitles.
