Clandestinos – Living Dangerously

Original title: (Clandestinos)
Cuba, 1987, 89 min, color

Set in the late 1950s, a young Cuban couple and their friends struggle with all their might, in the urban underground movement, against the Batista regime. They get into a dangerous crossfire with the secret service and police, and must fight for their lives.


One of the most ‘Hollywood’-like and commercially successful of all Cuban films, Clandestinos is a tense action-packed political thriller.


This first feature film by Fernando Pérez (Hello, Hemingway; Suite Havana; Madagascar) remains a Cuban box office hit until today.
