Chico y Rita (2010)

Tono Errando, Fernando Trueba and Javier Mariscal direct Limara Meneses, Eman Xor Oña and Mario Guerra in this animated period romance following the on-off affair between a Cuban singer and pianist.

Cartoons having sex. It is always weird. The romance is stock, yet warm. The music keeps things flowing even when the quality of the animation drops. The recreation of Cuba is superb. A country largely unchanged, architecture -wise, since the revolution, this looks the part and took me down memory lane back to one of my favourite holidays.
