Playing Swede ( Hacerse el Sueco)

Rating:No Rating
Genre:Drama
Release Date:January 1, 2003

Description: Daniel Diaz Torres directed this broad comedy about a family struggling to make ends meet in cash-poor Havana. Amancio (Enrique Molina) is a retired Cuban police officer who makes a point of following the letter of the law, and while many of his neighbors have different schemes to make extra money, Amancio will have no part of such doings. His wife, Concha (Coralia Veloz), and daughter, Alicia (Ketty de la Iglesia), however, have decided that necessity outweighs ethics, and they bend the local laws by renting out a room to Bjorn (Peter Lohmeyer), a professor of literature from a college in Sweden who is in Cuba on a research project. Or at least that's what he's told Concha and Alicia, but by the time Amancio finds out about this, the family has discovered there's more to Bjorn than they imagined. Hacerse el Sueco had its American premier at the 2001 Los Angeles Latino Film Festival.~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide
