| Funny, well-written, acted and incredible choreography
I cannot believe that some of the people who commented on this movie are actually describing the same film. I sincerely and truly found this movie to be entertaining, funny, beautifully produced and showing some of the outstanding choreography and flavor found only in Vegas or Lido shows. To me, this is a tremendous effort by Cuban cinema and a beautiful production. I would like to add that I am no fan of Fidelism, socialism, communism or any ism and that my personal review is solely based on what my eyes witnessed and heard. Kudos to Thais Valdes and the rest of the cast...An outstanding achievement.....I also enjoyed the way racism was handled by a non-traditional Cuban family and the comments made by one of the family friends...Mulatto women are a good business nowadays...Mulatto women are not a business, but part of the beautiful ethnic mix that makes Cuba what it is.
