Movie Reviews

Great music and interviews
Michael J. Austin | Portland, OR USA | 02/02/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Aside from the fantastic music, what this video really brought home for me is how the US's totally misguided policies towards Cuba have hurt only the average Cuban and engendered widespread hatred towards the US government. (Doesn't it seem that the US's policies towards "rogue states" always wind up hurting only the lower classes?)

These musicians put up with hardships that most Americans can't even imagine and still produced incredible music."

"Really enjoyed it. Not as good as the Buena Vista Social Club documentary but it was good."
