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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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

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