Adios?
12 February 2018 | by See all my reviews

This is a strange film, as it is a documentary of a documentary! Though that actually doesn't take much away from it, as it is a good film on it's own! Since the musicians in the first film were older back then, it stands to reason that not everyone is still alive in this one, and that brought some sweet sadness to my eyes. But I learned much more about the "main" musicians, and the older footage of them made me smile, and twice, laugh! The only thing this film "suffers" from is repetition - both by using clips from the first film and by repeating some of the origin stories, sometimes verbatim. On the other hand, I loved seeing President Obama and being reminded of what a true leader looks, and acts, like! A good follow up/ending to the Buena Vista Social Club!
