Plot

A group of legendary Cuban musicians, some as old as their nineties, were brought together by Ry Cooder to record a CD. In this film, we see and hear some of the songs being recorded in Havana. There is also footage from concerts in Amsterdam and New York City's Carnegie Hall. In addition, many of the individual musicians talk about their lives in Cuba and about how they got started in music.
 

Comments

Courage of Older People Overcoming Life's Obstacles Wonderful I couldn't imagine how an excellent movie could be made of old folks playing in a band in Cuba.....was I surprised?!!!!!The joie de vivre shining out of that old man's eyes is now a mind-print to carry around and remind me of what staying power the human spirit is capable of.The fact that their country is a sad bunch of decaying buildings and carrs with no industry to speak of, doesn't bother these musical artists atall.They have their music and the love of a few women to keep them warm.And of course, the sheer beauty of natural Cuba is still there, which Castro could never remove. I would love to find out, "What do you Cuban-Americans think of this movie?What do you think of these old men?"Had our government extended a helping hand to Castro in the early days of the Revolution, would there have been a different outcome? See it.It's great.
