why??????????????
9 August 2005 | by nick-1001See all my reviews

You learn NOTHING about the great singer Beny Moré; leaves you wondering WHY DID THEY MAKE THIS TERRIBLE MOVIE???? And the production values are on the level of the Mexican classic "Juana la Cubana". But,nevertheless, the music is great, a few of the dance sequences are fun, and seeing the aged "Rumberas" Ninón Sevilla and Rosita Fornésbadly act a la John Waters is worth the price of admission... This was, apparently, a Cuban/Mexican production and, while purporting to be "about" Moré, it is really a melodrama about the making of a biopic and a pretentious study of the actor selected to portray him. A disaster all around.
