Shot in 16mm and set in a Cuba that seethes with discontent but has yet to tilt toward revolution, LIVING DANGEROUSLY follows the exploits of young urban guerrillas doing their best to awaken their countrymen to the need for political change. As the film opens, the leader of the group is

tortured and then visited in prison by a beautiful young woman who brings news for a comrade from his lover. Later the resolute leader will fall in love with his visitor, but for now he and his imprisoned comrades lead a hunger strike that is particularly difficult for one man, the aptly named

Fats, to endure. Once they are released, the revolutionaries get back down to the business of destabilizing the Batista regime. This ably shot feature combines romance and melodrama with the more usual Cuban fare of revolutionary heroism. The performances are generally good, despite the

cookie-cutter roles the actors have been given to play, and the tension and pacing of the film are well handled. Still, the film's love stories are never wholly convincing, its narrative is a little too predictable, and its message is pounded home with a heavy hand.
