Director: Leon Ichaso / Orlando Jimenez Leal
Produced by: Max Mambru Films
Released By:
MPAA Rating:

Filmed in the US but acted in Spanish, El Super is a warmhearted spin on the plight of Cuban exiles in old, cold New York. The coldness is not only figurative but literal: the refugees arrive in the Big Apple in the dead of winter, and hole up in a barely heated basement apartment. “El Super” is lonely building superintendent Reymundo Hidalgo-Gato. Himself a Cuban expatriate of ten years’ standing, Hidalgo-Gato feels totally out of place in New York, yet he has very little in common with his newly arrived countrymen. Hidalgo-Gato’s appealing star turn is matched by the sprightly performance of leading lady Elizabeth Pena.
