Story


A biopic on Hector Lavoe, who was one of the biggest Spanish-language singers in the 1970s, but personal tragedy and a heroin addiction left him penniless and dying from complications from AIDS. Known as salsa's bad boy, he had a crystal-clear voice and an incomparable talent for improvisation.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..Nothing gets explored at length, and some key points are glossed over altogether..”
by Mario Tarradell [Dallas Morning News]
“..Ichaso?s direction is flashy but empty..”
by Lewis Beale [Film Journal International]
“..a curiously sludgy cross between a Doomed Star biopic and a J. Lo vanity project..”
by Ty Burr [Boston Globe]
