Plot Summary

Veteran actor Andy Garcia steps into the director's chair for his first voyage into feature filmmaking with this heartfelt tribute to revolutionary, late-'50s-era Cuba featuring Dustin Hoffman, Bill Murray, Tomas Milian, and offering the director himself in the starring role. Fico Fellove (Garcia) is the politically neutral owner of the El Tropico nightclub who seeks shelter from the winds of change behind the crowded bar of his flourishing business. Unfortunately for Fico, the blood of the revolution flows deep within the veins of his passionate brothers, and it's only a matter of time before both the club owner, and his distinguished father, are forced to face the prospect of having their lives forever changed despite their indifference to the violence that surrounds them.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Though the filmmaker's feel for his Cuban heritage is bone-deep, it's a glazed and dolorous movie -- a depressed epic. – Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly, Jul 7, 2010

Rotten: Garcia needed better guiding hands and eyes in the editing room to jettison the many parts that bog down the story. – David Germain, Associated Press, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: It's handsome and heartfelt but mired in murky politics, plot inertia, musical montages and painfully pointed symbolism. – Bruce Westbrook, Houston Chronicle, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: Somewhere amid the bric-a-brac -- hot rhythms, ocean breezes and political upheaval and melodrama -- a movie languishes. Garcia never really finds it. – Robert Denerstein, Denver Rocky Mountain News, Jun 24, 2010

Customer Reviews

Fantastic film.

Because of the politics, some might not agree, but I thought this was a fantastic film. Well done, Andy Garcia.

The Lost City

This is an excellent and a fairly accurate portrayal of Revolutionary Cuba, with some modest artistic reprentation. Many of the caracters were well represented of the time, Beny More, and such. One of my favorite movies, I wish there were more about how Revolutionary Cuba effected some families. Down to taking valuables from the passengers at the airport. Salute F'ico

great insight

This gives great insight into the struggles of staying or leaving Cuba in the transition of Batista to Castro. More than one view point.
