Directed by Richard Lester
Screen icon Sean Connery (The Offence, Meteor) and leads an all-star cast that includes Brooke Adams (Man on Fire), Jack Weston (Fuzz), Hector Elizondo (Taking of Pelham One Two Three), Denholm Elliott (The Wicked Lady), Chris Sarandon (Fright Night) and Martin Balsam (After the Fox) in this sweeping story about two old flames who become caught up in the turbulence and exhilaration of Cuba's 1959 revolution. Robert Dapes (Connery), a cynical British mercenary, comes to the country at the request of one of country's most corrupt functionaries, General Bello (Balsam). But once there, Dapes finds himself unable to ignore the brutality and depravity of the regime - and unable to resist Alexandra Pulido (Adams), an old lover now married to a wealthy Cuban landowner (Sarandon). Surrounded by volatile guerilla fighters and the human vultures present at all coups, he must come to terms with his shifting views if he has any though of getting out... alive. Wonderfully directed by Richard Lester (Juggernaut, How I Won the War) with stunning cinematography by David Watkins (Out of Africa, Chariots of Fire).
