Travel Movie Watch: ‘Chico & Rita’

Travel Blog  •  Jim Benning  •  03.13.12 | 4:44 PM ET

This looks great. Nominated for a 2012 Academy Award for best animated feature, Chico & Rita is set in Havana, New York and Paris in the 1940s and ‘50s and features some great music by the likes of Bebo Valdés. A.O. Scott just gave it a rave review in The New York Times, calling it “an animated valentine to Cuba and its music.” He also notes that Havana’s streets “are exquisitely rendered and meticulously colored.”

It’s playing in select Landmark Theatre locations; in Los Angeles, it’s at the Nuart through Thursday.

Here’s the trailer:

It looks amazing!  Not only does it seem to have a powerful story, but the culture and music of Cuba seems to be brilliantly captured.  I almost even forgot it was animated as I was watching the trailer.  Can’t wait to see it.

I have to wonder how much money though this little film will bring in. The problem with this type of flick is it is geared towards a mature audience, not kids, yet is animated, which drives away many adult watchers. Of course at a film festival where it got rave reviews is a little different, as you have a critical audience that is okay with this genre of film and is looking through a different pair of glaases than mainstream movie watchers.

I wouldn’t hold my breath, no matter how stellar a picture it is. I will probably go see it, hope others can see past the animation, yet keep the young ones at home. Too mature for anyone pre-teen, is my opinion.
