Very touching movie!
30 October 2004 | by (Santiago, Dominican Republic) – See all my reviews

This movie is an example that even the more banal themes can be converted into a great show. It tells the story of a middle class young man whose only passion in life is music. The movie is obviously purposed to serve as an advertising platform for the songs of Palito Ortega but the story slowly develop into a drama as true as life itself. The young rocker must decide between the woman he loves, his family or his passion for music, which one should he keep?

You will find some spoilers in this film but they don't diminish its intensity. Not one of the greatest latin movies of all time but definitively one worth to see.
