“You used to like that song, you used to sing it—remember?” These words from an elderly saxophonist to his terminally ill wife reveal the essence of this delicate documentary, which ponders the intricate relationship between memory, music, and the process of aging. The film focuses on elderly Cuban musicians, who each reminisce on their lives through, with, and around music. Sensitively and deliberately shot in a personal, naturalistic style, the film is colored by poetic underwater sequences and musical interludes in the musicians’ own styles. At times melancholy, the musicians consider their personal relationships in their loss-tinged twilight years, ultimately always coming back to their close and powerful connections to music. -ST
