    Flames of passion explode on screen in the scintillating Sin La Ha ana,

    See how opposites attract and detract in this romantic cauldron of success, excess and failure in this eventful romantic romp from Route 504 PR

    Hot and cold describes the life of Yonah Acosta. Temperamental in the extreme this Cuban live wire is immersed totally in his pursuit of ballet stardom yet

    He’s at odds with seemingly every member of authority he encounterswhich derails his dreams. Not one who takes setbacks lightly the visionary links up with a tourist whom he sees as his ticket to success – and a way out of Cuba,

    Director and writer Kaveh Nabatian hits the daily double and scores in showing the immigrant experience and how people from two different lands and different cultures connect. At first we see the heat in Cuba and then the cold in Canada provide a perfect conduit for a tumultuous re-evaluation of life in this delicious and dangerous romantic triangle. And when our new immigrant hooks up with an Iranian Canadian emotional sparks fly everywhere. Feelings get hurt and thrive in this emotional rollercoaster of passion and deceit. Rousing performances from the three leads make Sin La Habana a wonderful and lustful look at the Cuban/Canadian dream with ballet the heart and soul. Inspirational and poignant this movies with its dreamy Latin soundtrack will reel you in(Robert Waldman).
