starring the legendary Franco Nero
An aging, down-on-his-luck Italian conductor reluctantly travels back to Havana, Cuba, to oversee several performances of compositions in which he specializes. His concerns seem well-founded when his trip starts off on the wrong foot and he is quickly met by the son he never knew he fathered years ago, but his past eventually adds new purpose and meaning to his present. This is a heart-warming, nostalgic tale of a quirky old man rediscovering the “spice of life” once again.
‘Havana Kyrie is extremely charming and emotional. I cried several times, and the ending is filled with joy. What a gorgeous film. Franco Nero’s performance is stunningly beautiful and poetic. It’s like he took everything from his legendary body of work and his extraordinary life and poured it all into this one character.’
