Review by Waldemar Freyre (posted on 23-Feb-2008)
The movie did not seem to have much of a plot. Set in the New York City of the early 50s, it followed the efforts of two Cuban musician brothers who were trying to break into the Latin music craze of that time. It turned out to be an excellent movie -- very poignant, very moving. The music and song were spectacular. I was particularly taken by one of the songs "Beautiful Maria." Dezi Arnaz Jr. played the part of his father to a T! They were also able to incorporate an old "I Love Lucy" show into the very movie. I highly recommend this movie.
