Storyline

In November 1958, the American teenager Katey Miller moves with her parents and her younger sister to Havana. Her father is an executive of Ford expatriated to Cuba, and Katey is an excellent high school senior student that misses her friends. The family is lodged in a fancy hotel, where Katey accidentally meets the local teenage waiter Javier Suarez. Later she sees Javier dancing in a public square and they become friends, but he is fired from the hotel because her acquaintances have seen them together. Katey invites Javier to participate of a Latin Ballroom Contest in the local Palace club to help him to raise some money, and she secretly meets him in the La Rosa Negra nightclub for rehearsals. Later they fall in love for each other in times of revolution. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

This movie is a must see
29 March 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is absolutely the greatest movie I have ever seen. I know all of the words to the movie and yet I still get butterflies in my stomach and tears in my eyes. The connection that was made between the two of them seems so real and incredible. You feel their pain and their love. This movie is really great for a low point in your day if you are looking to feel better as well as any other second of the day. It's great how they bring elements of the first movie into this one but keep them very subtle so as not to confuse anyone into thinking that this movie is a sequel or a continuation of the first. Like I said before, I really feel that this movie is really and truly amazing, and everyone should at least try it. You might prove yourself wrong.
