Movie Info

An aspiring opera singer from Harlem teams up with a charismatic busker and a kindhearted hustler to share his voice with the world, and teaches his two newfound friends the importance of taking your destiny into your own hands. Anton (Gabriel Casseus) lives in Harlem with his aunt. He dreams of moving to Italy and becoming a famous opera singer, and though he's been blessed with a magnificent singing voice, his passion has made him an outsider in his neighborhood. Running away from home, Anton meets passionate street pianist Matthew (Christian Carmago) and together the two begin drawing large, appreciate crowds on the street. Working the crowd as they do their thing is Wes (Damon Wayans), whose natural charm always gets the cash flowing. And while life on the streets is never easy, Anton, Matthew, and Wes soon discover that by following their dreams, they may find a means of transforming their lives forever.

  • Missing no stops on the road from cloying to annoying, Harlem Aria has waited more than 10 years for domestic release. Maybe its destiny has been written.

    March 5, 2010 | Rating: 2/5
  • Harlem Aria has been gathering dust since it screened at the Toronto Film Festival in 1999. Why it is now getting a release is something Congress should look into.

    March 5, 2010 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…
  • Despite pro handling on both sides of he camera, the storytelling and filmmaking ring false, especially, in the characterizations.

    Top Critic
  • Racial tensions and bawdy humor carry the day, until, following an unfunny set piece at a fancy hotel and a street robbery, black and white (far too) easily come together to help their young charge.

  • 100 minutes of Hell that had me reaching for my meds.
