"Sexy, sunny and sweet-natured, this lovely animation by film-maker Fernando Trueba and artist and designer Javier Mariscal is a 1940s love story with all the brassy passion of a Barry Manilow number, set in the nightclubs of Havana and New York." — Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

"The year’s best musical and one of the year’s finest animated films, this utterly delightful Spanish movie is an affecting, funny, historically accurate and at times pleasingly erotic story." — Philip French, Observer

"A delightful riot of colour, design, emotion and music." — Ken Eisner, Georgia Straight
