Portrait of Teresa

This 1979 Cuban film explores the conflict between a husband's machismo and his wife's growing feminism. He's a TV repairman, she works in a textile factory, and their disputes are unexceptional: he refuses to help with the housework and thinks his affair (with a young woman who wants her TV fixed immediately) should be judged by a different standard than hers. Director Pastor Vega uses bland long takes to develop an almost theatrical space, providing little of cinematic interest, though his wife, Daisy Granados, supplies just the right amount of anger as Teresa.
