Splashy, manipulative, lacks authenticity

I really wanted to love this film, but after shelling out $4.99 on Prime to see it, my take is that this film is full of IDEAS about Cuba and Cubans through the lens of an American writer and a Canadian/Italian director. The flashbacks are impressive flashy caricatures, but lack authenticity. Unfortunately so are many of the present-day characters. This film strives to manipulate emotions, which sometimes works, and frequently tastes like sugary LifetimeTV soda pop left out overnight: lukewarm and lacking fizz. There are wonderful performances by a brilliant cast, but the script lets them down.

Worthwhile work ruined by quirky cinematography

Good story, good soundtrack, some good acting, but why is almost every scene in shade and out of focus? Engaging Canadian drama but very hard to watch.

Heartwarming and heartbreaking story that was excellently told!

The Cuban is one of the best films I have seen in a long time! The story is heartwrenching and Louis Gossett Jr. does an amazing job playing the main character. The exposition of the story is incredible and I loved how Ana Golja's character storyline intertwines with Louis Gossett Jr's to show the importance of friendship and music. The question of following the rules vs. trying to inspire passion in a person is a great subtheme of the movie and even with such a sad story, the ending was beautiful and made me cry happy tears.
