CHICO & RITA

 

A Film by Fernando Trueba, Javier Mariscal and Tono Errando 
94 minutes, Spain 2010 
“One is left with the sensation of having seen something familiar, warm and- let’s confess, beautiful” -Luis Martinez
 
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.
