Harlem Aria is a 1999 drama directed by William Jennings. It stars Gabriel Casseus, Christian Camargo, and Damon Wayans. Anton is a twenty-eight year old black man who lives with his Aunt in Harlem. He suffers from a debilitating mental disability and finds solace in singing. Anton finally musters up the courage to leave his aunt's house for a life in New York City where he plans to pursue a career in singing. One day, as he strolls leisurely through the park, he meets the acquaintance of a cynical pianist named Matthew (Christian Camargo). Unfortunately, both men are targeted by a malicious hustler named Wes (Damon Wayans) who has already managed to con Anton out of his life savings once. Anton and Matthew must overcome financial and emotional obstacles in order to find the right path to stardom. Harlem Aria features Damon Wayans in a role very unlike his previous roles. He succeeds in his first dramatic film. Harlem Aria is for those who enjoy inspiring stories of men who hope to conquer their dreams, no matter what stands in their way.moreless

    New York Post V.A. Musetto

    Having Damon Wayans in the cast might attract viewers to Harlem Aria, but they're bound to be disappointed by the amateurish drama.

    The New York Times Jeannette Catsoulis

    Missing no stops on the road from cloying to annoying, Harlem Aria has waited more than 10 years for domestic release. Maybe its destiny has been written.

    Time Out New York

    It's impossible to believe these three clashing personalities would put up with one another for whatever loose change they could split as Washington Square Park buskers. You're bet...
