Goofs

50 minutes in the movie there is a scene where Fico interrupts Pizzi's dinner. You see Fico with a burning cigarette in the mirror's reflection. He pulls his cigarette from his mouth. Then the camera angle switches directly on him and you see him with a non-burning cigarette in his mouth. When you see Fico's reflection again the cigarette has disappeared from his mouth.

It was worthwhile going to see this movie
2 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

An excellent movie with a small budget. Andy did a wonderful job on his first attempt. I am sure we will see more of him as a producer. Of course there is room for improvement and I think that if he concentrates in the details of the production without having to act at the same time we will probably see this improvement in his next work.

I liked the music specially the showman that portrayed Benny More. Also the choreography was very good and the dancers where spectacular, in particular the fellow that participated as a solo. The guy playing the trumpet at the beginning and end of the movie was superb.

It gives an overall picture of the history from that period in the island nation and without being documentary it respects the motives and shortcomings of any historical process such as this one.

Thanks Andy for this movie, and keep up the good work.
