"Houses Without Walls" deals with situations common to all those who left their home countries, fleeing the dictatorships of the twentieth century. These brutal regimes transformed many of their citizens into forcibly or voluntarily exiled subjects, forever wounded by the trauma of separation and also ostracization for those left behind. Mothers and daughters grapple with personal and national tragedies with no solution in sight. As Cuba has not found its footing after having unconvincingly experimented with both capitalism and communism, ordinary Cubans inside and outside Cuba, are, much like the daughters in Rodriguez Drissi's fabulously dramatic play: forever suspended between their unending love for the island and a most difficult and painful relation with it. Definitely a must see!
