Don't miss this Film!!!
9 February 2004 | by (santa barbara, CA) – See all my reviews

I thoroughly enjoyed this film. If you liked "Buena Vista Social Club", then you'll likely love this film! It is the story of "Los Zafiros" (The Sapphires) an extremely popular Cuban vocal group of the 1960's and early 70's. They combined American doo-wop with influences from Cuba, and Latin American musical genres. The result is phenomenal harmonies, soaring leads and an infectiously fun and electric stage presence. The film tracks the rise of the group through interviews with friends, family and the 2 surviving members, one of whom still lives in Cuba, the other in Miami.

The director never gets in the way of the music or the fact that Los Zafiros vividly live in the hearts of Cubans to this day. When you hear their music, and see the vintage clips of their showmanship, you'll understand why they were often called Cuba's answer to the Beatles.

Miguelito and Manuel are the two survivors who tell the story of the group and deeply miss their 3 departed musical brothers. When Miguelito returns to Havana for their reunion, you feel as if you've traveled without leaving your seat. This culture of passion, joy, love, respect and tragedy is so inspiring that you'll want to buy a Zafiros CD and re-live the experience all over again. A perfect tribute to these marvelous musicians and their rich culture and passion for living.
