Summary This film is partly based on the memoirs of Cuban poet and novelist Reinaldo Arenas, played by Javier Bardem. Painter-turned-filmmaker Julian Schnabel offers a fusion of dreams, poetry and dramatic scenes depicting Arenas' dirt-poor childhood, his love for literature, his sexual awakening and early enthusiasm for the Cuban Revolution, his persecution by the Castro regime and his struggle for freedom. Javier Bardem was nominated for best actor for the Golden Globe and Academy Awards in 2001. Also stars Olivier Martinez, Andrea di Stefano and Johnny Depp. (From Cuba, in English and Spanish, English subtitles) (2000)
