Excellent movie!!! Great music + words to songs! :D, 25 April 2006
This film is a great watch! I believe it is much better than the first.
The story is about an american girl and a cuban boy falling in love and learning to dance together. She dances traditional ballroom and he is more free with his street style dancing and also passionate club style.
Political issues are rife throughout the movie, class, race, culture, a sleazy guy with a powerful father and some jealousy thrown into the story.
The dancing is incredible and what amazed me most is that before starring in this movie the main two actors had no dance skills and learned to dance this amazing in weeks!!
There is a dance competition where they really show off their honed skills.
The music is great and at the last club scene I switched the subtitles on to get the words of the dance songs. That is a great bonus as I was going to buy the music CD but dont need to now.
There are extra features too: multi angle dance sequences, dance commentary, interviews etc.
