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.
| Original Score: 3/5
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.
| Original Score: 2/5
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" ...
| Original Score: 1/5
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.
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.
Always charmingly frothy, even when the narrative threatens to salsa off with the fairies.
The Havana-set Day of the Flowers aims to dance away its script troubles to the infectious rumba rhythms of its soundtrack.
It's a likeable film, if not a particularly riveting one, easily enjoyed and just as easily forgotten.
