In the 1950s, two Cuban brothers come to America to seek fame and fortune as musicians.
Hardly the "unrated edition" as advertised, the DVD debut of this hot-blooded film delivers one additional scene: a pivotal bit with Armand Assante and Cathy Moriarty's characters late in the film. As director Arne Glimcher dishes in his commentary, the scene was a little rough for test audiences, but is good to have included now. Glimcher mentions too often the obvious character development but does has some curious tales, including how the film was nearly a vehicle for Jeremy Irons and Ray Liotta (ponder that one for a minute). Best of all, the film looks and sounds marvelous. --Doug Thomas
Love both these actors. This was a great romance story, very dramatic.
I loved that era and the music and dress of that time. Great cameo performance with Celia Cruz. Read more
