“The finest film of its kind…also the most joyous celebration of the sights, sounds and aromas of Latin culture by sympathetic northern outsiders since Black Orpheus.” – Senses of Cinema
“The best Wim Wenders documentary to date and an uncommonly self-effacing one…the players and their stories are as wonderful as the music, and the filmmaking is uncommonly sensitive and alert.” – Jonathan Rosenbaum
Aging Cuban musicians whose talents had been virtually forgotten following Castro’s takeover of Cuba, are brought out of retirement by Ry Cooder, who traveled to Havana in order to bring the musicians together, resulting in triumphant performances of extraordinary music, and resurrecting the musicians’ careers.
Dir. Wim Wenders. 1999. 105 min.
Stick around after the film! Redeem your ticket at the bar for $2 off any drink.
