Buena Vista Social Club

A group of Cuban musicians make a come-back

Wim Wenders 1995, USA, 105 mins.

These comments from Amazon users give you a good idea:

A very atmospheric evocation of a grindingly poor community enjoying itself. The musicians have great charm and presence and deliver beautiful performances with wit and style. 

This is one of the most touching films I've seen for ages. Ry Cooder goes in search of this old long-forgotten group all very aged. He finds them in Cuba and the story goes on from there. 

Gives a real feel for the country and its music, ending with a performance at Carnegie Hall, New York: tears of joy!
