Chico & Rita (2010)

Chico & Rita: a world made of animated sketches. A story of love, passion, misunderstandings, well told. Sometimes one gets so carried away by the story that forgets that it’s an animation. There are scenes of amazing beauty, like the ones where the sun’s rays poke into the rooms, the way the coarse lines that comprise the Rita manage to convey a sexual appeal, the colors of the cars and the surrounding environment in Cuba, although stronger than in reality, make the whole scenery feel … real. The style of animation reminds me of “Waltz with Bashir“, but similarities stop there.

Worth seeing? Certainly.
