Rating:
R

The Lost City is a 2006 drama directed by Andy Garcia that tells the story of a respected Cuban family and their business adventures during the regime of Batista and after establishment of a Communist government led by Fidel Castro. Fico Fellove (Andy Garcia) is the owner of El Tropico, a famous Havana club in the 50s. He is very passionate about high-quality music and about taking good care of his customers, but Batista's regime is a great obstacle in the development of his business. Ricarco (Enrique Murciano), his brother, joins a Communist rebel force and believes that only a revolution can liberate the people of Cuba. Brother Luis (Nestor Carbonell) chooses to join the democratic opposition, hoping to seize the power and restore order in the country. When a military rebellion against Batista fails, Ricardo is sent to prison but is rescued by Fico's connections in the police force. Soon, however, the Communist guerillas succeed in seizing the power, and Fidel Castro establishes a revolutionary government. El Tropico is viewed as a symbol of capitalism and Fico is forced to choose between his love for music and obeying the authorities.
