Chico y Rita

Fictional story set against a factual background – Havana and New York in the 1940s/1950s.  It’s a really lovely, simple tale of star-crossed lovers – a singer and a musician – looking for their big break.

The fact that the film is an animation allows it to get away with just a touch of melodrama, but doesn’t make it too childish.

Best of all, though – the music is blimmin’ fantastic!  Worth it for the soundtrack alone.
