  • It has all the makings of a perfectly formed feel-good movie, but Spanish director Iciar Bollain and British screenwriter Paul Laverty have less conventional ideas in mind.

  • The film-makers' hearts are in Havana and, yes, their enthusiasm is infectious.

    April 15, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • The genius in the film is in how each section feeds each other, and indeed needs each other (the dance comments on the drama, and vice versa), and produces a wholly original and deeply affecting movie.

  • Crafted with passion, integrity and determination, much like Acosta himself.

    April 11, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • What's perhaps surprising given the insider involvement from Acosta is the film's insight and emotional generosity that extends even to overbearing Pedro.

  • Superstar Cuban ballet dancer Carlos Acosta takes us through his life in unusual style in a mix of drama and dance, fiction and reality.
