Audience Reviews for The Mambo Kings

  • Mar 04, 2009
    I liked how serious both the musicians were about music in this film. That isn't portrayed convincingly in film very often.

    Two ambitious Cuban brothers come to New York to make a name for themselves as musicians during the mambo craze of the 1950's. By day they work hard at manual labor, at night they are transformed; but the pressures of fame threaten to drive them apart. Academy Award Nominations: Best Song ("Beautiful Maria of My Soul").
