    First and foremost a celebration of Cuban dance and music.
  2. 75
    Shot in black-and-white, La Tropical serves as an atmospheric portrait of Cuba in the twilight of Castro's rule.

    Crammed with comments from patrons and performers, La Tropical is a sensual celebration of people for whom dancing is the "most important nonreligious ritual."

    Beautifully photographed, sensitively told stories. Music that makes you want to shake your booty. A sensual experience.
