beautifully filmed and the camera is always in the right angle
3 March 2021 | by mofiniSee all my reviews

As the director of mambo Man film myself, I found The Cuban beautifully filmed. The lighting was perfect, the story followed all the way through. There was not one moment that I could leave and go to make a cup of coffee. I watched it all in one go to the end and honestly thought it was one of the best films I have seen. It has emotions, sensitivity and above all element of human. Watch it to judge for yourself as I am not going to give anything away! I watch lots of film and 99 times out of 100, I give up after few minutes!
