  • The story may be scattered and sagging and the picture may have little emotional impact -- certainly nothing to justify the epic running time -- but Garcia at least succeeds in making Havana in the 1950s seem like a vibrant, special place. He doesn't exactly make the audience care, but he does make the audience understand why he cares, and that's something. show more

  • When an intensely emotional scene calls for the voice to break, call in Andy Garcia. He does the best voice-breaking, half-choked sob of anguish in the business, and he does it a lot in Lost City, his well-meaning directorial debut. show more

  • A handsome production but one that struggles to integrate its various elements -- cabaret-society glamour, intellectual fervor, family drama, impossible romance and droll humor. show more

    Andy Garcia and your supportive family for making this very touching and passionate film!Thank you, Straight from the heart! I think every part of this film was made with a sincere passion for your country. Your personal in site & perspective are awesome. When this beautiful island called Cuba and it’s people had to fight to survive and stand up for what each believed would help to bring a better Cuba. To stand up for the culture and what Cuba means to the heart.With great love & respect your cast, writing, directing, storyline, music, dance, costumes/ wardrobe design, locations, architecture, cinematography, conflicts of interest, families torn apart by different beliefs and the grief that comes from all the carnage, loss of place & of country .The farmlands, the music, and the pride gets stripped away as this small beautiful country was getting ripped apart at the seams.Families, friends, soul and conscience behind the life or death choices each forced to make. I still think that most people need to know and see more of this kind of film and the Cubans that are not always portrayed in a positive light. These films are history and often unknown to most, including myself. I am not latin but always looking to learn more especially through films like yours. Thankyou
