I saw this movie for the first time in 1995 on television and it has been a favorite of mine ever since.
Armand Assante was absolutely awesome! Pure male magnetism just oozed from his pores in this role and I think I became his biggest fan by the time the movie had ended.
Antonio Banderas was handsome as ever and the two of them together was definitely a treat for female viewers.
The the music, the dancing and the charisma of the movie was infectious and fun to be a part of, even if it was only in a visual context.
I must admit, my rating is strictly biased because, to date, I still think Armand Assante is the sexiest man alive and anything that he is in, I make it my business to see, so the 10 was earned entirely on the basis of Armand Assante's presence.
