    A landmark musical tribute.

    This is one fan's valentine to the music he loves. It just happens that the fan is a terrific filmmaker and the music loves him back -- and we get to see it and hear it all. What a treat.

    A must-see for avid fans and a welcome primer for nascent hip-shakers everywhere.
  4. Some of the artists appear ecstatically transported as they play. Others are just having one hell of a good time. Believe me, it's contagious.

    This is one of the most infectiously joyous celebrations of musicmaking ever committed to film. See it and be ennobled.
  6. It is a spellbinding hour and 45 minutes of pure music, Latin jazz to be specific.
  7. 60
    Calle 54 doesn't have that coherence or vision of the "Buena Vista Social Club."
