Chico and Rita is a 2010 animated music romantic film with Spanish and English languages directed by Tono Errando, Fernando Trueba and Javier Mariscal. The story of Chico and Rita is set against backdrops of Havana, New York City, Las Vegas, Los Angeles and Paris in the late 1940s and early 1950s. The film has an original soundtrack by Cuban pianist, bandleader and composer Bebo Valdés. Musicians featured in the film include Chucho Valdés, Dizzy Gillespie, Charlie Parker, Chano Pozo, Tito Puente, Ben Webster, and Thelonious Monk. Film critic Philip French called it “the year’s best musical and one of the year’s finest animated films”.
