Chico & Rita

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.

That “Chico & Rita’’ was Oscar-nominated for best animated feature this year says more about the lure of exotica and a weak crop of home-grown entries than anything about the film’s quality per se. A likable but cliched star-crossed romance set along the post-WWII Havana-New York jazz axis, the Spanish-made film features terrific music, passable artwork, and characters who stubbornly refuse to become more than sketches. It’s great that the pioneering distributor GKIDS is bringing offshore animation for families and grown-ups alike to Americans’ attention, but a must-see this isn’t.
