Andy Garcia's "The lost city" was a great movie

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Let me issue a disclaimer.   I am not a movie critic.  Frankly, I don’t watch movies with a critical eye but rather to be entertained.  

In recent years, I enjoyed “Gods and Generals” because I love anything about the US Civil War.  

March of the Penguins” was well done.  
I liked “The Rookie” because it is such an uplifting story.  
I walk the line” was fun and informational about Johnny Cash.

The Lost City” tells a story that most Cuban exiles can relate to.  This is not a pro-Batista movie or presents Cuba as a pre-Castro paradise.

This is a movie about the betrayal of Cuba by Fidel Castro and Che Guevarra.

This is about the young men who died to restore the 1940 Constitution rather than impose a communist dictator.

This is about the Cuban middle class who stood up to Batista.

This is about Fidel Castro canceling elections and bringing the Soviets into Cuba.

This is about Che Guevarra’s firing squads.

I was there but too young to remember most of it.  Yet, our home in the US was always full of Cuban stories.  My parents always reminded us of what we left behind.

I won’t spoil it but the movie is about a family caught up in the turmoil of 1958-61.

Want more? Watch the movie!

The music is spectacular. The choreography of old Havana is stunning. Close your eyes and you will feel back in the elegance of La Habana.

You need to watch or download “The Lost City” by Andy Garcia.
