His cinematic style borrows from Luchino Visconti's mise en scene and is permeated by sometimes heavy melodrama. He started making shorts at a very young age and directed his first medium length film Manuela in 1966. The success of this film led him to direct Lucía, told in three stories in different moments of Cuban history, all seen through the eyes of a different woman named Lucia.
