A proof that animated films are not just for kids but for adults as well. This is the film that should have won the Oscar for Best Animated Feature.

This is the film that should have won the Oscar for Best Animated Feature. I like Rango but it wasn't anything spectacular compared to this. Pretty much one of the best romantic films I have ever seen. It's portrayal of the early 50's is breathtaking, its design is unique, the animation, though simple, is full of life and energy and allows the simplest facial expression become a legit emotional feeling, the two leads are realistic, charming, complex and have an unrivalled chemistry and the music is authentic and timeless. I honestly couldn't see this as a live action film as it wouldn't capture the emotion and expression that the animation allows into the love story. I am in love with this film. Great story, great characters, great animation, great music. If you love romance films, don't ever pass this up on DVD. Collapse

It's hard to explain how a Spanish-language film featuring not-that-sophisticated animation could be so utterly captivating. The music helps, of course, and the way the star-crossed Cuban lovers evoke another time. I thought of "Calle Ocho,"It's hard to explain how a Spanish-language film featuring not-that-sophisticated animation could be so utterly captivating.

An adult animated movie with a classic romantic story over the span of life time and places with deep cultural roots and lovely jazz dazzle to it, this is a good movie to watch. Expand

"Chico & Rita" offers a beautiful and charming moment. Trueba brings a fantastic old story about love. "Chico & Rita" is like "Porgy & Bess" with latin sounds and excellent honor to Bebo Valdés. "Chico & Rita" and "Wrinckles" are newest"Chico & Rita" offers a beautiful and charming moment. Trueba brings a fantastic old story about love. "Chico & Rita" is like "Porgy & Bess" with latin sounds and excellent honor to Bebo Valdés. "Chico & Rita" and "Wrinckles" are newest beginning of Spanish animation cinema history. Soundtrack is faboulous, plot is solvent and directing is correct. Azúcar!! Expand
