Chico y Rita: Cuba,1948. Chico is a young piano player and Rita is a beautiful singer with big dreams. From the night they meet at a dance in Havana, life pulls them together and pushes them apart like two people dancing a bolero. Music and romantic desire unite them, but their journey brings heartache and torment.
Directed by Fernando Trueba and Javier Mariscal, Chico y Rita perfectly captures the steamy, vibrant atmosphere of 1940s Havana, a time filled with music and romance.
