Rosa and the Executioner of the Fiend DVD

(MVD) Despite its low budget and often awkward acting this drama about a Cuban would-be assassin taking over the strategically located apartment of a Jewish Holocaust survivor is pretty compelling. While the chemistry, comedy, and intensity this film required never reaches the levels they should, the films goals (didactic history lessons about Jewish refugees rejected by Cuba and the US, and the tragedy of Cuban children sent to the U.S. without parents during Castro's glory days) are achieved.
