You must see this film
20 July 2004 | by (netherlands) – See all my reviews

This is a very enjoyable British budget film from David Kane. It probably would not win any awards but it really is a lot of fun. It contains a bunch of misfits all looking for love - they all have the local salsa club in common and the film takes place in and around this point. It has a great cast - none of them famous but all of them very well cast and you do care what happens to the characters (always a good sign)and the film is very funny. It also has a great soundtrack. If you like Latin American music and you enjoy a gentle comedy you this is a film for you! I would not hesitate to recommend this film and anything else from David Kane. If I had to give marks out of ten, it would score at least eight!
