In this musical road trip through Cuba, the singer-entertainer Cucu Diamontes takes us back to her home country of Cuba along with her real life husband the guitarist-composer Andres Levin. The movie guised as a road trip and improbable love story seeks to expose the beauty of the Cuban people while also poking fun at the communist government. Cucu's performance on the stage is amazing and it certainly saved me the hassle of staying up late for a concert as I simply went to the movies with my 17 year old son who enjoyed the movie too. I force my kid to go with me and after the film he told me he was glad we went. Like any great book or movie the viewer gets more than a simple story, in Amor cronico the viewer gets an adoring look at Cuba and its people. It certainly looked a lot better than all of the old cranky Cuban ex-patriots in south Florida, who gave us eight years of George Bush, seemed to think it was. It was completely worth going just to watch Cucu sing and dance.
