Ladies and gentlemen,

a very good evening to you all.

El Tropico,

the most fabulous nightclub in

the world, presents

its latest,

but not late show,

where we are taking you all

to the magical productions

of our Rodney the Great.

Ladies and gentlemen,

we are honored tonight

to have in our presence

the world's greatest

living race car driver,

here in Cuba forthe first

Havana Grand Prix.

Ladies and gentlemen,

the one and only Fangio

for once, stationary.

Fangio! Fangio!

Fangio! Fangio!

Fangio!

And now, a special treat

for a very special couple.

Forever newlyweds,

Dona Cecilia, Don Federico,

The Anniversary waltz

by Strauss.

Happy Anniversary.

Atoast.

To the most

elegant couple in Havana.

Happy Anniversary.

And to this,

the happiest of families.

May it be that way forever.

Hear, hear.Salud.

Salud.

Salud.

Dance with me,

as you once did?

You make me

sound like a relic.

My relic.

Donoso, would you

dance with me?

watch yourself.

Uncle has two left feet now.

His elbow,

it works fine.

l would give an arm

and a leg and an elbow

forjust one single waltz.

My kingdom for a cha-cha-cha!

Hear, hear.

Let's go dance.

I'll be right back. wait here.

what's wrong?

So which one

of those dancers

is your girlfriend

this week?

who are you

saving yourself for?

No one.

All the good ones

are already spoken for.

Fangio, I want to present to you

my wife Mercedes Fellove.

Come on, let's go.

This meeting was my idea...

because these are very

difficult times, as you know.

Cuba has always

lived in difficult times,

but through them all,

we have been able to survive

because we have

always been united.

But our country

isn't safe anymore,

and it threatens us.

Your uncle and I are all

that remains of our generation.

So, my sons,

you are the future.

The future of our family.

The future of this island.

Yes, and

look at me.

Look at me, because

this is for you, too.

lf we want to

change the status quo,

we must go about it

in a democratic way.

You hear?

we must be patriots.

Patriots.

Patriotism is a refuge for scoundrels.

Do you

lt is politics

that has become

the practical refuge of

Papi, do not make the mistake

of confusing me for

one of your students.

I'm not. I graduated.

Hey.

Show a little respect.

No, no, no, no.

Let him talk.

Let him talk.

This is a democracy.

oh, this country,

a democracy? Right.

our family is a democracy.

This country is my family,

and the only way

to truly unite that family

is revolution.

Revolution?

Revolution, yes.

l just can't believe it.

A son of mine

that would support

the random violence

of revolution?

You better start believing it.

what you need is

a little evolution,

not revolution.

Correct.

The poet.

Club owner, poet.

You're lucky you're on

the other side of the room.

l feel lucky,

because it probably

stinks on that side of the room.

Please.

Happy Anniversary.

You are too much.

Did I forget to say that?

Happy Anniversary?

Just watch your mouth.

what? You've been watching it

the whole time.

lf I hear one more

word of disrespect

coming out of your mouth,

I'm gonna

deal with it personally.

Do you understand me?

what?

You understand

what I just said to you?
