Salsa & Mambo Video Reviews


Salsa Movies


Style: Mostly LA

General Comment: Dance movies nornally have a poor story line, and this is not exception. The dancing is good, with a Micheal Jackson look alike showing some nice patterns and mostly solo dancing. His female partner is good. It is now a very out of date movie, and you will recognise old fashioned moves, but when it came out it was fairly successful. A decent soudntrack, unfortunately ruined from some 80ish eletronic tunes..

Salsa - French Production

Style: Mostly Cuban

General Comment: With a choice of a name which makes it impossible to discriminate from the previous one, this french production covers the stoty of a while guy who can not find a place in a cuban band despite his talent, and works around the problem by faking to be black. Good ending is a must. Nice soundtrack but little dancing to enjoy.

Born Romantico

General Comment: Little to no dancing in this movie which attempts to describe the social life and psicological aspects behind the salsa social scene. Don't expect deep concepts, but better than other attemnpts.

Dance with me

General Comment: Maybe the most famous of the salsa movies. Big Hollywood cast, famous sound track. Silly story line, but well produced. A lot of ballroom dancing, of quite high level and a beatifully danced pure cuban finale. The video is enrihed by the presence of Ricardo Lemvo, DLG and the super Albita. The dancing scene during Albita song started the rueda craze which swept the world for years.

The Mambo Kings

General Comment: Another big Hollywood production, surely my favourite salsa/mambo movie. It has a story line which is not silly, a fantastic soundtrack, and a list of NY salsa starts of the likes of Tito Puerte, Celia Cruz, El Canario and many more... worth whatching.. not much dancing, but the atmosphre of the famous Palladium is well recreated.
