Storyline

At age 24, Rémi Bonnet, brilliant pianist, abandons Chopin and Toulouse to play the music he has secretly loved for years - Salsa! He heads for Paris, the salsa capital of Europe, only to discover to his great surprise, that nobody wants a white boy in Latin band! Felipe, his Cuban friend, sets him straight: " You don't have the Latino look, muchacho! Today, if your are not Cubano or Columbiano, you are out!". Undaunted, Rémi deliberately takes on the identity, accent and complexion of an unemployed alien in a city where most foreigners will do almost anything to become French. Barreto, 75, the legendary Cuban composer, who is about to close down the once famous Casa Cubana, offers Rémi a job giving dance lessons to the locals. It is here that Rémi falls in love with Nathalie. Her family's "secrets and lies" reveal parental links to Barreto. Do these links explain why this shy beauty ought to be a bomb on the dance floor?

Amazing movie for amazing Latin dances
15 October 2005 | by See all my reviews

Salsa The Movie is really one of the most rare and most amazing movies about Latin dances.Watching that movie means getting charged with Latin spirits and feel for dancing.It describes the arduous life of a french artist whose passion the music itself becomes salsa dance passion. He start studying the main steps of salsa and soon he becomes sophisticated salsa dancer.In the next scene he mets the beautiful Natalie who is also dancing salsa. Together they start training for a large salsa competition. The watchers can really feel the rhythm by watching the steps of the couple. This feeling also comes from the uncountable dance scenes in the movie. The movie ends with a lot of spirits. You should really sea this film. Amazing.
