Another trailer for a must see animated movie! Chico and Rita looks excellent, I love the style of characters and the lines used, very jazz! The film features a cracking soundtrack from the likes of Dizzy Gillespie, Cole Porter, Thelonious Monk and Bebo Valdes. It looks like a beautifully crafted, romantic story with excellent direction. I can’t wait!
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.
