Chico & Rita directed by Fernando Trueba and Javier Mariscal is on Netflix instant play and I couldn’t be more thrilled!!
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.
If you’re a lover of Jazz, music, animation, and great storytelling you will absolutely adore this. Chico & Rita has been on my radar to watch for awhile now. I love that its a Spanish-language animation and the style this entire film has been drawn in is just beautiful. Every scene is just breathtaking. I highly recommend you watch it for not just the eye pleasure, but for the music as well.
