UN HOMBRE DE EXITO ( A Successful Man ) A Successful Man An epic chronicle of thirty years of Cuban politics and history, A Successful Man has been compared to The Godfather for its lavish period re-creation. The tale begins in the thirties with the brothers in school and the future full of promise.

This is a story of corruption versus innocence and purity of right is blessed with Solás' meticulous attention to detail. Directed by Humberto Solás, 1986.
