Director: Arne Glimcher
Cast: Antonio Banderas, Armand Assante, Cathy Moriarty, Desi Arnaz Jr.

A soapy drama about two brothers who flee Cuba in the 1950s and try to launch a musical career in the U.S. The performances are the best part of the film, although their hit “Sweet Marie of My Soul” playa one too many times during the film. Adapted from Oscar Hijuelos’ novel The Mambo Kings Play Songs of Love.
