Day Of The Flowers review

This breezy tale of family secrets casts ballet star Carlos Acosta as its soulful love interest, but the real romance here is between the camera and the beautiful streets of Cuba.

We follow overzealous socialist Rosa (Eva Birthistle) and her underzealous, stylish sister Ailie (Charity Wakefield) as they rescue their father’s ashes from an undignified fate to scatter them on Castro’s stomping ground.

As the pair bicker and get into scrapes, humour and melodrama rub along uncomfortably, but the likeable leads and gorgeous scenery make this lightweight trip fly by.
