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.
The first Spanish animated film to be nominated for the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature.
Have you thought about your career? About your future?
Rita: Future, what future? The future never gave me anything! All my hopes are set on the past.
The poster for "Vertigo" in Paris has "D'entre Nos Mortes" on it rather than "Morts". This is the title of the source novel, sometimes featured on the poster in France, but the title was "Sueurs Froides".
