Top 100 Most Anticipated Films of 2012: #50. 7 Days In Havana

Typically, I’m not a fan of the omnibus, but I consider myself a fan to various degrees of the seven attached names in this pack. The untouched utilized backdrop of Havana is such a rich and rarely shot locale and a seven day Monday to Sunday narrative stretch and conjoining storyline and characters means the bookends of the film will feel a lot more natural.
