I saw this film in the cinema and simply loved it, so I bought the DVD for several friends as soon as it was released. Happily the people I bought it for loved it as much as I did. Chico is a piano player, Rita is a singer and music brings them together - and also conspires to keep them apart. It's a tragic love story with wonderful jazz. If you can only think of Walt Disney's Snow White when you think of animation, this is the film to show you that this is an art form that can be very grown up as well. The use of colour is almost as stunning as the music. I just loved it!
