La Bella de la Alhambra is a good movie where Cuban music mixes with nostalgia and history. La Alhambra used to be a very popular theater for men in now bygone times in Havana.It was a hot spot in the first half of XX century. Many willful singers and actresses tried their luck there looking for fame and money. Many male spectators traded there their boyhood for manhood. The movie captures the atmosphere of the place.The music brings remembrances and rhythm.Good movie with good acting.Knowing Spanish is of great advantage, since reading subtitles will make you miss some "flavor" in the expressions
