10 Days of Oscar – Chico & Rita

One of the nominees for Best Animated Feature Film this year is Chico & Rita, a lovely film about finding love in 1948 Cuba. The film chronicles the long and sometimes painful love affair between Chico, a young piano player and Rita, a beautiful young woman with an equally beautiful voice. The plot is not exactly original but the film more than makes up for it with beautifully rendered shots of Havana, New York, Paris and even Hollywood. This is the kind of animated movie serious adult moviegoers have been waiting for. Its themes may be mature but its also one of the most delightful movies of the year. I had the pleasure of seeing it in Spain last year and now it’s opening in certain theaters across the U.S. I’m happy that the Academy has decided to honor this film and I hope you will too. Here is a look at this great little movie:
