One of the Filmspotting team thinks this is a better version than it’s predecessor* and so I figured I would check it out. It is indeed a delightful film having really cool stuff (Cuba, Latin Dance, the delicious Diego Luna, as well as the Cuban revolution) and the dancing is also great. You can even spot now famous people who weren’t then** as well as a cameo by someone who is now dead.***
Cost: Free from library
Where watched: at home, while painting toenails. It’s not a great movie for this activity. I had to keep stopping to watch the dancing
*causing much outraged glee from the other of the Filmspotting team.
**Two, count ’em, two actors now famous for their roles in Mad Men are present.
***Said cameo elicited a squeal of glee from me.
