This movie is about the communist takeover of Cuba, and how it affects a Cuban nightclub owner and his family.
29 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I hate to do this, because so much effort went into this movie, but I feel like I need to warn people: This movie is awful!! True, the scenes in the club are great, but the plot is laborious and the characters are unsympathetic and the director treats his audience like a kindergarten classroom. "CASTRO = BAD. Here's 16+ scenes of the communists doing bad things so that you'll get the point! Still don't get it? We'll have Che laugh maliciously just to hit the point home."

Also, the dialogue is reminiscent of Star Wars, Episode III. The lucky movie-goer will get to witness at least five scenes between totally uninteresting people where the conversation goes something like this:

"I love you"

"I love you too. *kiss* But we can never go back to the way we were."

"Why?"

"Because - things have changed."

"I know"

"I'll always love you."

*single tear* "Goodbye, so and so"

Anyway, it's really awful. Don't see it. Just buy the soundtrack.
