Official winner of the Kermode award 2011, and they almost lost it when being surprisingly nominated for the 2012 Oscar, this love letter to Cuba’s energetic Jazz music scene of the 1940s brings together heart-warming, and heart-breaking love, smooth rhythms, interesting animation with pleasant ocher colours, dynamic motorbike chase sequences, and great panoramic views of Havana and New York. What can I say? A wonderful film, with a wonderful and sad love story and a sad but wonderful (if not terribly creative) ending, and characters that really have rhythm in their blood. What better compliment to give them than to say that I would have loved to share their time, even though it’s mostly not even my kind of music?!
