<i>Strawberry and Chocolate</i> bubbles with situations. David is a handsome, upright, uptight sociology student, traveling a straight and narrow path toward a predictable future. One day, quite by chance, he links up with a complete stranger. Warm, funny Diego has the gleam of a man who enjoys life, knows what he wants, and has an opinion about everything. He revels in the arts and asks all the right questions. To top it off, the two are sexual opposites: David is straight; Diego is gay and has his heart set on David! They are like oil and water . . . or strawberry and chocolate.
Set against the backdrop of Havana and a Cuban society that has always looked askance at homosexuality, <i>Strawberry and Chocolate</i> cuts through prejudice and phobias to make a passionate plea for tolerance and understanding. This remarkable film by one of the great filmmakers embodies humanity and love.
