Chico And Rita On DVD
'Chico And Rita' is due to be released on DVD on the 9th of May in the UK. I've pre-ordered my copy, you should too. It's a brilliant film by Javier Mariscal & Fernando Trueba. Sadly overlooked at the 2011 Oscars, It didn't even receive a nomination when it's clearly good enough to have won.
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.
