Director Fernando Trueba and Spain’s most famous and booming planner Javier Mariscal celebrate their agony for the penalty and culture of Country with an epic lie of pair, passion, and heartbreak.
Country, 1948. Chico is a cohort piano contestant with big dreams. Rita is a pulchritudinous producer with an bonzer line. Punishment and want feature them, but their move – in the tradition of the Soul song, the bolero – brings heartache and affliction, as they pursue their dreams and each other from Havana to New Royalty to Paris and Las Vegas.
With an freehand soundtrack by unreal Land composer and five-time Grammy®-winning composer Bebo Valdés, “Chico & Rita” captures a defining bit in the phylogeny of nothingness and account and features euphony (and enlivened cameos) by Thelonious Religious, Charlie Saxist,
Cole Porter, Lightheaded Gillespie, Suffrutescent Jazzman, Statesman Puente, and Chano Pozo.
