Plot Summary, Synopsis, Review: IMDb - - - - - «This cartoon, produced in Cuba, is a bit of an enigma. There are aspects I find amusing, story points that are unique, aspects that I find a little distasteful and it uses a sledgehammer to put across its political message. The cartoon itself begins with a little history lesson regarding vampire society. Vampires have been around for a rather long time – we get representations of a caveman vampire, an Egyptian vampire and vampires in classical Greece. It was not until 1870 when vampire society became organised and split, essentially, into two camps. ... The animation of the cartoon is very basic; it is reminiscent of the animation style of say the Pink Panther series. One might call it stylised, however, if you were being kind. That said I was uncomfortable with some of the racial stereotyping in the cartoon’s style. As you watch the film, however, you see that the dialogue is accusing the capitalist world of being the racists – specifically the English vampire – thus there appears to be an anti-racist message at the film’s heart, albeit in a very small sub-plot. It seemed odd that Padrón would point such a finger at the West and yet use such offensively stereotyped images of black characters...».
