Chico and Rita is a 2010 Spanish-British adult 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. Chico is a young piano player with big dreams. Rita is a beautiful singer with an extraordinary voice. Music and romantic desire unite them, but their journey—in the tradition of the Latin ballad, the bolero—brings heartache and torment.

Directed by Tono Errando, Fernando Trueba and Javier Mariscal. Produced by Santi Errando, Cristina Huete, Michael Rose and Martin Pope. Screenplay and story by Fernando Trueba and Ignacio Martínez de Pisón.

  • Business? That's my business!
  • That's Chico. Unknown, but he's the hottest piano player in Cuba.


Chico: Have you thought about your career? About your future?
Rita: Future, what future? The future never gave me anything! All my hopes are set on the past.

Chico: You look like a Yankee!
Rita: But i still like kidney beans...
Chico: I've seen you in magazines. You're headed for Hollywood, right? Aren't you tired of playing Miss Charming?
Rita: Don't you like me sitting by your side, eating kidney beans?
Chico: I like it so much, it frightens me...
Rita: What are you frightened of?
Chico: Same thing as you...
Rita: Why should I be frightened?
Chico: Of listening to your heart for once. Of leaving your cage and not finding your way back.
Rita: You really believe that?
Chico: Uh-huh...
Rita: Come with me!
