TFF 37 Mini Review: Chico and Rita, Spain-Cuba, 2010, 96m

Rita sings at a club

Chico and Rita is an animated story of a talented Cuban jazz pianist named Chico and the love of his life, the talented singer Rita.  They chase each other across the Americas and across the decades, overcoming personal and political barriers to their marital bliss.  The director went to significant effort to stylistically match the period in geography, dress, and music.  The movie’s soundtrack is filled out by performers such as  Dizzy Gillespie and Charlie Parker.
