Synopsis

Academy Award® Nominee*

"Utterly delightful! Elegant, energetic and witty ... The year's best musical and one of the yea'’s finest animated films." – Philip French, The Guardian

From Academy Award®-winning† director Fernando Trueba and acclaimed artist Javier Mariscal comes an epic love story that captures the music and culture of 1948 Cuba.

Chico is a piano player with big dreams. Rita is a beautiful singer with an extraordinary voice. Music and desire unite them and bring them from Havana to New York, Paris, Hollywood and Las Vegas. With an original soundtrack by legendary Cuban pianist and five-time Grammy® winner Bebo Valdés, Chico & Rita captures a defining moment in the evolution of jazz and music history, and features the music of (and animated cameos by) Thelonius Monk, Charlie Parker, Cole Porter, Dizzy Gillespie, Woody Herman, Tito Puente, Chano Pozo and more.

*2011: Best Animated Feature Film of the Year

†1993: Best Foreign Language Film, Belle Epoque
