About the Film
Cuba, 1948. Chico is a young piano player with big dreams. Rita is a beautiful singer with an extraordinary voice. Music and romantic desire unites them, but their journey – in the tradition of the Latin ballad, the bolero – brings heartache and torment. From Havana to New York, Paris, Hollywood and Las Vegas, two passionate individuals battle impossible odds to unite in music and love. With an original soundtrack by legendary Cuban pianist, bandleader and composer Bebo Valdés, and featuring music by jazz legends Thelonious Monk, Cole Porter, Dizzy Gillespie and Freddy Cole (brother of Nat King Cole). Chico & Rita captures a definitive moment in the evolution of jazz music.
beautiful and a wonderful sountrack
the most charming, wonderful love story i have seen in a while.
Really beautiful film, don't miss it!
Lovely animation, incredible music, and a beautiful, romantic love story, which really brings out the atmosphere of 1940s Havana, and keeps you captivated. I could go on about this amazing film for hours, but let me just say this: if you're reading this deciding whether or not to view the film, please watch it straight away. You won't regret it. *****
Lovely animation, great music, but...
Lovely animation, great music. Can't help myself, what a silly moo. Nearly 50 years in a motel room... Seriously?
