PBS has done it again very well done documentary series. This movie was interesting, informative, and worse seeing!! I recommend this movie for all to see. Well worth the price of admission to any theater.

A very enjoyable music-documentary by director Wim Wender, whose hand-held camera followed a group of ageing, previously famous Cuban musician as they were pulled together to perform again.
