Chico & Rita – The Movie

Something a little bit different, I suppose. Yesterday I caught the flick ‘Chico & Rita’ on the big screen. It tells the tale of a gifted young Cuban pianist who falls for a sultry Cuban singer, and follows the many adventures and tribulations that result from their initial union. Havana, New York, Las Vegas and Paris all form backdrops in this feature length animated story directed by Fernando Trueba, with the beautiful artwork coming from the hand of artist Javier Mariscal.

Here’s the trailer:

Anyway, the music that accompanies this movie is wonderful. Worth tracking down the DVD when it gets a release. Same goes for the inevitable soundtrack!
