Critic Reviews for The Cuban

All Critics (18) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (14) | Rotten (4)

  • Aside from a few technical quibbles, The Cuban is a fairly pleasant cross-generational, cross-cultural drama.

    July 31, 2020 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • A pleasant, plangent hybrid of culture-clash drama, odd-couple formula and late-life Bucket List bromide.

    July 30, 2020 | Full Review…
  • This genial, well-intentioned movie never quite lands a real emotional punch.

  • Within a schematic premise that finds two people, at opposite ends of the life cycle, reconnecting with happier times and their true selves, the grace notes are what lift the story from the page.

  • Perhaps sensing that the rest of his story - mostly focusing around the earnest do-goodery of Golja's aide - falls emotionally flat, Navarretta lavishes attention on his two marquee players, creating tiny moments of poignancy.

  • As a story of the curative power of music, it works, has a good beat and you can dance to it.

  • Buoyed by Latin rhythms and the spicy flavours of Cuban cuisine, The Cuban plays a familiar tune. However, its odd couple tale about embracing life through its last days is often sweetly endearing.
