Film - El Cantante

Marc Anthony gave his all musically and theatrically in bringing to life the story of the rise and fall of salsa legend, Héctor Lavoe (1946-1993), as told from the perspective of his wife Puchi(JLo). It's a tale of talent - creating salsa with Willie Colón, with the Fania All Stars, and as a soloist - and a story of disintegration - fueled by drugs, alcohol, partying, and depression. Puchi's voice - proud and querulous - dominates off-stage as Héctor's does on.excellente!
