Up to a Certain Point

A short feature (1984) by Cuba's Tomas Gutierrez Alea (Memories of Underdevelopment). It seems to have been part of an official government assault on the problem of “machismo” in Cuban society, though Alea is able to lighten the schematism inherent in propaganda films with a fairly open shooting style and attractive performances. Assigned to do a documentary on women working in jobs traditionally held by men, a famous Cuban writer finds himself falling in love with his principal subject, a feisty female dockhand, but is ultimately unable to accept her independence.
