Chico and Rita

19th February 2012

Set in the night clubs of Havana, New York and Las Vegas in the late 1940’s, this lush but delicate animated feature has a fantastic musical backdrop of Cuban-influenced jazz. The beautiful singer, Rita, and talented pianist, Chico, are passionately in love, but can only scrape a living in the Havana jazz clubs. When a New York impresario tells Rita he can make her a star in the USA, but there is no place for Chico in his plans, their tempestuous relationship faces its greatest challenge.
