Rate this:
For Love or Country is a biopic about Cuban trumpeter Arturo Sandoval. It explores his life as an adult, when he becomes increasingly dissatisfied with Fidel Castro's constraints on his music and the politics of a "Revolution" that declares his real musical love, American jazz, illegal. The film does not concern itself with every nuance of Cuban politics, but is about Sandoval's struggles to remain true to his country, which he loves with a passion, while balancing it with his love for music, which he cannot give up despite countless roadblocks.

VERY GOOD 2001 bio-pic of fab trumpet player from Cuba - interesting perspective on Fidel/Cuban 'revolution.
Fine acting by Andy Garcia - and some excellent music...

This movie shows the true side of Cuba. Besides the sleeping around, language, and the taking of Our LORD's name in vain. Highly recommended.
