This is the shittiest documentary I've ever seen. For starters, it seems to have been filmed on someone's phone. Secondly, it's about 80% footage of in-studio session recording. There's nothing to be learned. I'm interested in the actual album, because I'm interested in exploring Latin music and it is regarded as a classic. But this sucks.

Seems to be conceived around the musical group, but other than providing some nice listening throughout, it's very bad at capturing that subject. The editing is a mess and while Wenders' good cinematic eye shows up in random places most of it is not very well shot either. What it's best at is showing so many interesting glimpses of people and, through them, Cuba. Those little moments help it succeed as a portrait of a country and its people where it fails as a portrait of a band and its members.

There's a bit for almost everyone here -- we learn a little more about the BVSC musicians, see some good performance footage, and some nice scenes of Cuban life -- but only a bit. Recommended mainly as a supplementary companion piece for those who love the album.

The music itself is fantastic, featuring memorable and rich songs with accomplished musicianship and great passion. It was a pleasure to spend time with the players and learn a little bit (unfortunately, not a lot) about their lives and careers. However, the cinematography is simply awful. The movie has a cheap, amateurish, washed-out look. It's very unpleasant to behold, especially with the shaky camerawork. It feels like it was all done rather haphazardly with little thought. Just buy the CD.
