Hasta Cierto Punto (Up To A Certain Point)

A classic Cuban film by Tomás Gutiérrez Alea

In this movie about a filmmaker named Oscar, Cuban director Alea tackles the problems men have in conceding authority and autonomy to women in Cuba. Oscar is researching a documentary on male attitudes and while interviewing several subjects, he learns that a husband feels he must have a higher salary than his wife, and while the bee may flit from flower to flower, the flower cannot go from bee to bee. As the extent and shape of male chauvinism begins to emerge in his research, the married Oscar falls in love with an independent-minded woman who is working on the docks where they are filming. At this point, male biases are brought home to his doorstep—will he be honest and leave his wife for the woman he now loves? If not, can he really make a documentary on machismo if his vision is hampered by his own biases? 1983, Spanish with English subtitles.
