CHICO & RITA

FILM CURRENTLY UNAVAILABLE
RETURN
Oscar-winning director Fernando Trueba ('Belle Epoque') and Spain’s most famous and successful designer Javier Mariscal create a passionate and animated love story. Cuba, 1948. Chico is a young piano player with big dreams. Rita is a beautiful singer with an extraordinary voice. Music and romantic desire unites them, but their journey – in the tradition of the Latin ballad, the bolero – brings heartache and torment. From Havana to New York, Paris, Hollywood and Las Vegas, two passionate individuals battle impossible odds to unite in music and love. Nominated for an Oscar and with an original soundtrack by legendary Cuban pianist, bandleader and composer Bebo Valdés, 'Chico & Rita' captures a definitive moment in the evolution of jazz music. The film features music by jazz legends Thelonious Monk, Cole Porter, Dizzy Gillespie and Freddy Cole (brother of Nat King Cole). ★★★★ "Sexy, sunny and sweet-natured" - Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
