Critic Reviews for Cuba Feliz
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.
