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.

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

    Nov 29, 2013 | Rating: 2/5
  • Lame gags and supporting turns ensure it concludes closer to Mamma Mia! than Marx.

  • 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.

  • 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.
