Still from 'Chico y Rita'
A feast for the eyes and ears! Set in Havana, Paris, and New York during the late 1940s, this irresistible meld of music and stunning animation tells the bittersweet tale of Chico, a gifted jazz pianist, who is smitten with Rita, a sometime sex worker and vocalist. Their passionate affair and partnership is endangered when a smooth-talking Yankee impresario tells Rita he can take her to showbiz glory in New York—without Chico.
