Like her mother before her, beautiful Sissy wants to be a dancer at the Tropicana, Havana's famous cabaret. But her truck driving father, Candido, forbids her to do so because of his ongoing grudge against Armando, his former rival and choreographer at the nightclub. When Candido and his friend Promedio accidentally run Sergito over, Promedio sees the star-shaped mole on the boy's buttock, identical to Candido's. Much to Sissy's delight and to Promedio's dismay for fear of incest, Candido takes the boy home, unaware that Sergito is his son and therefore Sissy's brother. Promedio's worries are confirmed when the two youngsters fall madly in love.Written by
Funny, well-written, acted and incredible choreography
I cannot believe that some of the people who commented on this movie are actually describing the same film. I sincerely and truly found this movie to be entertaining, funny, beautifully produced and showing some of the outstanding choreography and flavor found only in Vegas or Lido shows. To me, this is a tremendous effort by Cuban cinema and a beautiful production. I would like to add that I am no fan of Fidelism, socialism, communism or any ism and that my personal review is solely based on what my eyes witnessed and heard. Kudos to Thais Valdes and the rest of the cast...An outstanding achievement.....I also enjoyed the way racism was handled by a non-traditional Cuban family and the comments made by one of the family friends...Mulatto women are a good business nowadays...Mulatto women are not a business, but part of the beautiful ethnic mix that makes Cuba what it is.
