Enjoyable romp
30 July 2012 | by grant_bastionSee all my reviews

This was fun.

Thankfully, this wasn't the rom-com it was billed to be by the Edinburgh Festival's guide - the character's happy-go-lucky adventures mesh easily with a more complex portrayal of a Scottish family's relationship with Cuba.

Carlos Acosta particularly makes a strong debut. Perhaps fans of Cuban dance would be disappointed that there was not more actual dancing included in the narrative structure but then this story stays fixed on the central portrayal of the sisters and their conflicts.

Colourful cinematography and a quick pace made for a pleasing movie experience.
