Buena Vista Social Club Diretto da Wim Wenders
It’s inside the ancient studio’s walls that Wenders’ film snaps to. His camera finds an astonishing sight: two beautiful Afro-Cuban singers of a certain age, facing each other behind two old microphones… The pair, matching their voices’ timbres with easeful grace, sing in rounded Cuban Spanish about silence and love and death. They wear expressions at once tender and serious as they gaze bemusedly at each other and the lush notes between them. The camera, as if transfixed, slowly circles them.

Maybe Wenders himself was seeing the writing on the wall. After the failure of his ambitious magnum opus [Until the End of the World], he spent the ensuing decade making increasingly less successful fiction films, his name seemingly destined to become a dated relic of arty ‘70s and ’80s seriousness. But he found renewed life — not to mention an Oscar — with 1999’s Buena Vista Social Club (Nov. 12 only), a remarkably exuberant portrait of the titular Cuban musicians.

The result is arguably the finest film of its kind since the similarly intimate and somehow almost miraculously expansive musical event-movie, The Last Waltz (Martin Scorsese, 1978). Buena Vista Social Club is also the most joyous celebration of the sights, sounds and aromas of Latin culture by sympathetic northern outsiders since the once very highly praised but today rather underrated French/Brazilian Academy Award and Palme d’Or winner Orfeu Negro (Black Orpheus, Marcel Camus, 1959).
