Movie Info

Seventy-six-year-old Cuban street musician Miguel Del Morales, known as El Gallo (The Rooster), travels around Cuba with his guitar, making music in the homes of friends, in bars, and on street corners, in courtyards and stairwells. His rich voice, colored by a lifetime of cigarettes and rum, weathered by the sun and rain, bespeaks the joys and sufferings of his countrymen. An urban troubadour, Del Morales has been called "a living memory of Cuban bolero."

A quasi-documentary by French filmmaker Karim Dridi that celebrates the hardy spirit of Cuban music.

A grittily beautiful film that looks, sounds, and feels more like an extended, open-ended poem than a traditionally structured story.

While the performances are often engaging, this loose collection of largely improvised numbers would probably have worked better as a one-hour TV documentary.

In painting an unabashedly romantic picture of a nation whose songs spring directly from the lives of the people, the movie exalts the Marxian dream of honest working folk, with little to show for their labor, living harmoniously, joined in song.

Frustratingly, Dridi tells us nothing about El Gallo other than what emerges through his music.

Falls short in explaining the music and its roots.

While general audiences might not come away with a greater knowledge of the facts of Cuban music, they'll be treated to an impressive and highly entertaining celebration of its sounds.
