Critic Reviews for The Cuban
Aside from a few technical quibbles, The Cuban is a fairly pleasant cross-generational, cross-cultural drama.
A pleasant, plangent hybrid of culture-clash drama, odd-couple formula and late-life Bucket List bromide.
This genial, well-intentioned movie never quite lands a real emotional punch.
Within a schematic premise that finds two people, at opposite ends of the life cycle, reconnecting with happier times and their true selves, the grace notes are what lift the story from the page.
Perhaps sensing that the rest of his story - mostly focusing around the earnest do-goodery of Golja's aide - falls emotionally flat, Navarretta lavishes attention on his two marquee players, creating tiny moments of poignancy.
The Cuban is a touching story of a compassionate friendship that grows through music. This film is incredibly timely, especially as the world has its eyes on the realities of long-term care. Highly recommended for all audiences from young to older adults.
