Product Description

A 're-imagining' of the 1987 hit film starring Patrick Swayze, this upbeat teen musical romance follows the blossoming relationship between nice, well-brought-up American girl Katey (Romola Garai) and wrong-side-of-the-tracks Xavier (Diego Luna). 18-year-old Katey moves to Havana, Cuba with her parents in the late 1950s, just as the country teeters on the brink of a revolutionary uprising. She is instantly drawn to local bus-boy Xavier, and defies the wishes of her parents by accompanying him to a nightclub where he teaches her how to 'dirty' dance Cuban-style. The two grow increasingly close, but when Fidel Castro comes to power, Katey's parents decide to flee for the US - leaving Katey to make the ultimate decision. Patrick Swayze makes a cameo, reprising his 1987 role as Johnny Castle. The film features music by modern-day artists including Christina Aguilera, Wyclef Jean, Mya and Black Eyed Peas.

From Amazon.co.uk

The sinuous world of 1950s Cuban dance halls provides the setting for Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights, a "re-imagining" that shares with the original movie a deep love of sexy young people pressed tightly together on the dance floor. Fresh from New England, bookish and lovely Katey (Romola Garai, adorable in the charming but little-seen I Capture the Castle) meets a fiery young busboy named Javier (Diego Luna, Y Tu Mama Tambien) at a snooty hotel. Before you can say Tito Puente, the two have found a common language in the sensual swaying of their limbs, despite the resistance of Katey's mother (Sela Ward). It's all ridiculous, of course--the dialogue is atrocious, the characters tortilla-thin, and the politics embarrassing--but that's hardly the point. Luna is dreamy, there's lots of sweaty dancing, and Patrick Swayze makes an appearance--what more can you ask from a movie called Dirty Dancing? --Bret Fetzer

on the whole a great film, which lives up to the name dirty dancing! the film is set in 1950's Cuba where a rebellion is taking place. Patrick Swazee makes a great cameo appearance as a dance teacher (of course), but he fails to get a lead performance as the cuban heartthrobe steals the show as the waiter habier. Katie and her family move to Cuba because of her fathers promotion and the shy Katie is instantly drawn into the world of hypnotic, latin-style dancing. But with the annual dance competition coming up can Katies ballroom skills and Habiers latin style be enough to win the competition and finally make king and queen of "la lozzeri"

Wow!!!

My parents bought me this in June for my birthday, i put it in the DVD rack expecting to watch it someday, laugh at it then never watch it again!

So, i thought i would see what amazon customers thought of it, and i was suprised to see most reviews had 5 or 4 stars. i put the DVD in and was in absolute shock that the film was sooooo brill!!!

It could never replace the original as i love that but i loved this just as much. the dancing was fabulous and sexy, the music was brilliant. i have new found respect for Shakira's - Hips Dont Lie, as the original is in this film and goes so well with it. Also i was pleasantly suprised to see Patrick Swayze in the film, a great addition. And the singer Mya too, i loved that bit in the film.

I always have to like the leading man to get into a film properly, and i didnt think i would with this one, but throught the film, Javier grew on me, and he was very handsome.

One problem was that i thought the film would be longer, it's only 1hr18mins and i wanted at least another 30 mins! but apart from that, it was a delicious, must see film. Go buy it now!

I first watched this film a couple of years ago when my friend got given it. I fully expected to be slightly dissapointed because i was at that time a big lover of Dirty Dancing the original. However this film, in my opinion is a lot better than the first one.

The first thing i think you should know is that it is not a sequel to Dirty Dancing, in many ways it is more of a prequel having happened before the first. The only links between the films are the name, Patrick Swayse and basic story line of boy meets girl and being of differnet class it is not accepted.

The acting is top class and one thing i found incredible about this film is that niether Diego Luna or Romola Garai used a dance double and niether of them had any dance experiance. They also managed to come over accent difficulties, Garai having to put on an American Accent and Luna, being mexican, a cuban one. Yet there is not one point it the film where these accents slip.

Where this film really triumphs over the original is the historical backdrop. Rather than the first Dirty Dancing where we have a secluded holiday resort as the setting, here we are based right in the center of the Cuban Revolution, which adds a lot to the play especially by the power of the actors who portray the difficulties of the Cubans and ignorance of the Americans very well.

The dance sequences though in the big envents there are less lifts than the First Dirty Dancing, they are no less exciting and interesting.

This film is worth a watch whatever your age or gender. My brother, mother, sister and friends have all loved this film almost as much as me since i have shown it to them.

This film is well worth the money because as well as being a fantastic watch it is the sort of film you never get bored of watching, i am almost word perfect and my friends has watched it about 20 times in the last week, since i leant it to her. So this film is well worth a watch and a buy.

Havana Nights is best considered seperately from it's predecessor as it has really nothing to do with it beyond being a film about young people brought together by a love of dancing and a cameo appearance by Patrick Swayze as a dance teacher. Katie(Romola Garai), an academic teenager brought to Havana by her parents when her father changes job, is intrigued by the Cuban waiter Javier(Diego Luna) at the hotel where they stay.Javier shows Katie several instances of kindness, helping her when she is lost in town and escorting her back to the hotel at night when she has problems with her approved date,so inspiring her to want to help him when he loses his job.
Recognising his natural talent as a dancer and with some dancing skills herself (coutesy of her parents who are ex ballroom dancers) Katie suggests they should fuse their very different styles and enter a dance competition so he can win some money.Unsurprisingly, Katie has to learn to loosen up on the way as well as shed more than a few a few inhibitions and in the process falls in love with the 'Cuban poor boy'- much to her parents dismay.
The whole story is set against the overthrow of President Batista in 1958 with the consequences that entails for both of them.Whilst a fairly predictable story and suffering from a certain akwardness in the dialogue, especially at the end, the leading characters manage to engender much interest and sympathy, especially the excellent Diego Luna, who is always completely believable and 'sympatico'. Neither Luna nor Garai had professional dance training before, but managed a great job
with a little help from skilled choreography and photography.
