Set in 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.
With an original soundtrack by legendary Cuban pianist, bandleader and
composer Bebo Valdés, on whom the character of Chico is loosely based, Chico & Rita captures a definitive moment in the evolution of jazz music.
This is certainly one for jazz lovers – the film features music by legends such as Thelonious Monk, Cole Porter, Dizzy Gillespie and Freddy Cole.
