Story


Andy Garcia ("Modigliani") stars and makes his directorial debut in a passionate and historical tribute to his native Cuba. Havana in 1958 is a place of pleasure for many, but others are not happy under the rule of dictator Fulgencio Batista. As the revolutionary forces of Fidel Castro and Ernesto "Che" Guevara prepare to move on the city, Fico Fellove (Garcia)—owner of the city's classiest music nightclub, El Tropico—struggles to hold together his family and the love of a woman (Inés Sastre), not knowing that his club will become more than just a stage for popular entertainment. Observing all is The Writer (Bill Murray) an ex-patriot American who sees Fico being drawn into events as the revolution changes everything. Though Fico watches a culture vanish and a people transformed, it is his love of Cuban music that keeps his memories alive.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..Colors and textures are very well captured in the cinematography and production design, but performances suffer..”
by [Cinema Signals by The Filmiliar Cineaste]
“..As a director, Garcia is such a sucker for gratuitous crosscutting and glossily elliptical filmmaking..”
by Nathan Rabin [The Onion A.V. Club]
“..seems like a mini-series edited to feature length without time for character development..”
by Ed Scheid [Boxoffice Magazine]
