    despite the beautiful music and cinematography, there was little substance to this film. i was hoping for a film that would provide more history of the cuban crisis; this film's treatment was facile. slow paced, boring, and overall disappointing film.

    This is a good movie, with actor and director (Andy Garcia), Shows the Cuba way of life coming up. Kind of like the Soprano's in the begining. Glad I rented, but doubt that I would add it to my DVD Collection, sorry a nonbuy. Great dancing and music all throughout.

    (April 2006, Director Andy Garcia) Andy Garcia, Dustin Hoffman & Bill Murray right away worth seeing...add Cuba's history to this & you have what movies ought to be!! TREMENDOUS IMPACT! Watch it for Andy Garcia's character who has tremendous heart and responsbility in the face of life's most serious events thrown at him! Dustin Hoffman & Bill Murray's performances--off beat but very special in this movie! 6 STARS!! <div style="width:257px;"><a href="http://www.flixster.com/photos/andy-garcia-andy-garcia-5390467"><img src="http://content9.flixster.com/photo/53/90/46/5390467_gal.jpg" border="0"/></a><div style="text-align:center;font-size:10px;"><a href="http://www.flixster.com">Flixster</a> - Share Movies</div></div>Fellow Flixster reviewer Cinevolver brings up an interesting point: Fico Fellove doesn't show us his actual political views in this movie?! Si! In fact my opinion is Director Andy Garcia's choice for his character Fico Fellove, head of the brothers in the household, has too much responsibility to worry about his politics! A practical sort (which I believe myself to be), Fico chooses to stay alive and to take actions to try to keep his family alive during the times of extreme upheaval in pre-Castro's Cuba. Aurore Fellove (Ines Sastre) dabbles with her affections at the precarious timing of the junta in Cuba! My advice? Darling, if you are loved by one of the sexiest men on this planet in any country...don't dabble simply in trivialities! We've all been there, at least once. Learned anything?? Also check out Modigliani....if you have a passion for painting or the Renaissance..or the arts!

    really great film for a directorial debut by andy garcia. he also does a great job acting in this one. bill murray plays a small role but steals the movie in all of his scenes. his character is even pointless, but he makes the film more entertaining. good flick that i recommend about the rise of fidel castro in cuba. the cast was great and the story flowed well.
