Movie Info

Two young, strong-willed Scottish sisters, one a left-wing activist, the other a most-popular-girl-in-school type, take their late father's ashes to Cuba, the site of many family legends of his services to the REvolution. Arriving in Havana, the two women promptly lose the ashes and go through a series of misadventrues - both romantic and dangerous - to try to retrieve them. A colourful and wryly humourous tale of cross-cultural misunderstandings and lost illusions.

It's refreshing to see a film about two women that doesn't focus entirely on their love lives, but that's the limit of the cliché-busting; elsewhere, archetypes abound.

The Havana-set Day of the Flowers aims to dance away its script troubles to the infectious rumba rhythms of its soundtrack.

If the plot gets a bit confusing there are mild diversions with the landscapes and music, though even that is unlikely to send you dancing all the way home.

The film is guilty of generic storytelling and jarring plot developments, but it's also likeable and mildly diverting in places.

Although occasionally the multiple plot strands seem to be pulling against each other, there's a warmth to the production that eases us over the structural cracks and makes us care about the outcome.

This confusing Cuban/Scottish romantic roadtrip movie does offer some very modest pleasures.

Lame gags and supporting turns ensure it concludes closer to Mamma Mia! than Marx.

File this one in the cupboard marked "at least they must have had fun making it" ...

Pretty Cuban landscapes and the graceful Acosta are the highlights of this slight but winsome road trip romance.

Humour and melodrama rub along uncomfortably, but the likeable leads and gorgeous scenery make this lightweight trip fly by.

Watchable British drama enlivened by engaging performances, a terrific soundtrack and a strong sense of location, though the script is occasionally both frustrating and confusing.

January 22, 2013 Full Review Source: ViewLondon

Always charmingly frothy, even when the narrative threatens to salsa off with the fairies.

July 5, 2012 Full Review Source: Eye for Film
Eye for Film

It's a likeable film, if not a particularly riveting one, easily enjoyed and just as easily forgotten.
