Chico & Rita (2010) Poster

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.

Did You Know?


Fernando Trueba and Javier Mariscal's collaboration dates back 10 years when Trueba asked the designer Mariscal to create a poster for his Latin jazz documentary Calle 54 (2000). The two would go on to work together frequently, even to the point of co-owning a jazz restaurant in Madrid.


Ramón: That's Chico. Unknown, but he's the hottest piano player in Cuba.


The kitchen in which Chico and Rita eat kidney-bean soup is in the United States. However, a European-style electrical outlet can be seen clearly on one of the walls.
