Part documentary, part infomercial by PeterMarinac April 26, 2002 - 1:17 PM PDT

This DVD contains two movies, one a fascinating documentary and the other a how to buy, keep and smoke a cigar infomercial, which utilizes much of the same footage.

The first flick is great, even without captions--something I noticed was not being displayed by default only towards the end of the piece. The handheld camera with quick cuts of two parallel themes, cigars and cuban music, result in an a fascination illusion of presence. This is armchair tourism taken to a new level. I ended up watching the first piece once without captions and then a second time without--there is no dialog, just music.

The second movie, which has almost commical narration, simply intersperses a how-to on cigar connoisseurism with some of the footage from the first movie and more formally introduces the great musicians featured on the dvd.

Sound quality is extremely variable, but in every other way this documentary shines.
