Wim Wenders intoxicating documentary captures the rehearsals, recording sessions and performances of several giants of Cuban son music, a popular form that dates back to the 1930s. American musician Ry Cooder rounded up these musical greats, some nearly forgotten, and organized a joyous, celebratory collaboration that brought their style of song back into the spotlight. Ibrahim Ferrer, Compay Segundo and Ruben Gonzalez are just a few of the bright lights who enjoy a most deserving revival here. "Fame and acclaim apparently had to wait until these particular musicians were in the twilight of their careers. Like vintage wine and instruments, they seem to have improved with age" (Richard Harrington, Washington Post). English and Spanish.
