I am fiending to get back to Cuba and this animation isn’t diminishing my appetite! Chico & Rita is a mature animated feature that begins in Old Havana (1948) and takes us all over the globe, from Paris to New York to Hollywood. It’s a sultry story centered around a young piano player (Chico), a beautiful young cabaret singer (Rita), and their passionate desires; not just for each other but for success.
Just from the trailer you can tell this is a work of art, a visual and aural succulent treat. Opening in UK theatres November 19th this year. Why is that the UK always gets the coolest stuff first?! I can’t wait for this animation to make it across the pond. Look for a review soon.
