    This revolution is eternal.

  3. Picard romane's rating of the film Buena Vista Social Club

  4. angeldromero's rating of the film Buena Vista Social Club

    Que frescura y sabor tienen los cubanos a la hora de componer y bailar música. Este documental me hizo llorar varias veces de alegría. Mostrando la cara más humilde de figuras de la música cubana que fueron olvidadas por décadas. El documental te lleva a lugares donde sus corazones laten más rápido, a sus comunidades, barrios y clubs. No dudes en darte un chance de entrar al mundo de estas maravillosas personas.

  5. João Martins's rating of the film Buena Vista Social Club

    An important documentary record of the most remarkable Cuba's band. An great vision inside country's culture too.

  6. Layla's rating of the film Buena Vista Social Club

  7. Adnan's rating of the film Buena Vista Social Club

    4 stars out of respect, but probably holds more of an emotional impact for those related to or of cuban culture

  8. AALC's rating of the film Buena Vista Social Club

    Great theme to talk about. Interesting, powerful and beautiful.

  9. Ieva Šukytė's rating of the film Buena Vista Social Club

  10. Mtume Gant's rating of the film Buena Vista Social Club

    The thing that annoyed me about this doc that I rather liked was that in some way Ry Cooder becomes the defacto "star" of it, which feels completely wrong since this a film about CUBAN musicians. Otherwise, strong document

  11. SiIencio's rating of the film Buena Vista Social Club

    5 stars to the honest characters, the Cuban sounds, La Habana, the genuinity of the Cubans, their humbleness & integrity in the face of adversity. Buenavista has both artistic & humanistic dimensions, both incommensurable & transcendental, everything magnified by the fact that the crew were largely living legends brought up from oblivion, one step away from extinction. Ry Cooder just had to sit quiet & film it all.

  15. Paula Ramos Salas's rating of the film Buena Vista Social Club

    Esta película, ya perfecta en todo aspecto, lo es mil veces más desde el momento en el que sale Ibrahim Ferrer cantando "Dos Gardenias" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mz_01le5pMs ... es tan increíble que conmueve.

  16. Ingrid Bergman's rating of the film Buena Vista Social Club

    Loved this postcard from Cuba and the wonderful music of Ry Cooder playing with legendary Cuban musicians from yesteryear who would have otherwise remained unknown to the outside world. A must see for music fans!

  17. Abdul Malik's rating of the film Buena Vista Social Club

    The best thing Wim Wenders has done. Really heartfelt and moving; completely sincere.

  18. Frankly, Mr. Shankly's rating of the film Buena Vista Social Club

    Fascinating and well conducted doc. I especially loved that scene when Rubén González, in his garish-orange costumes, put his photo memories back into a blue plastic bag and goes walking through the park. Such a beautiful and genuine moment. It's really sad that all those veterans were almost forgotten before the album's release. Ry Cooder, man has my respect.

  19. Yass's rating of the film Buena Vista Social Club

    Très sensible, très beau, par contre, de trop nombreux passages de concerts à simplement écouter leurs morceaux...

  20. Lays Laine's rating of the film Buena Vista Social Club

  21. Colin's rating of the film Buena Vista Social Club

    Beautiful movie. Turned me on to so many Cuban artists. Ibrahim Ferrer's screen time was particularly great.

  22. Mike L's rating of the film Buena Vista Social Club

    Great panorama of Havana, Cuba, and some of it's residents that have seen it through it's heyday to what it has become today. Also, a great CD.
