A Movie “Chico and Rita” 3/19/12

March 20, 2012

Chico and Rita was nominated for Best Animated Film at Oscar this year, but did not win. I was very curious to see this film because the story is based in Cuba where I visited in 2010 as a part of my concert tour. I have a great memory from Cuba. It was beautiful…. This film is a love story between Chico, a young/talented pianist, and Rita, a pretty singer with a gorgeous voice. The music is wonderful throughout the movie. The musical opportunity takes them to New York, Paris, Hollywood, and Las Vegas, together or separately. The animation technique is not up to date, but this vintage atmosphere makes this movie more expressive and melancholic. We enjoy a musical journey with Chico and Rita. It is sexy and beautiful.
