      "Chico and Rita": The fate of the separation and separation has been ill-fated, and the reunion has turned white

      The streets of Havana in the afternoon. The aged Chico finished polishing his shoes and walked slowly home with his toolbox in hand. From time to time, acquaintances greeted him, a few young people listening to rap music, an old lady on the balcony facing the street, and a car mechanic downstairs. Chico just responded indifferently, his expressions and movements filled with exhaustion. It was not until he returned to the dwelling, turned on the radio, and heard jazz music, that there was a...

      Beautiful music, simple story

      Saw it at the BARBICAN cinema. I want to buy the soundtrack after watching it once.
      The more beautiful poster is the one with the yellow skirt.
      There are a few interesting episodes. Spanish women are really different.
      It feels as if the important things for a person are only until the age of 30, and the time after that does not count.
      I really like the animation in it expressing the plot of the city and the dream.
      I like that window screen fluttering.

      Some love is always unsatisfactory

      1, Chico's character: Chico is actually a little naive man, not mature enough. However, naive men are more real and cute. If they are like the one who took Rita away, they are mature, scheming, and successful, but you don't love them anymore. I don't question Chico's love for Rita, it's just that his love, from a woman's point of view, doesn't seem to be enough. When his ex-girlfriend came to the door, when he was unable to resolve the conflicts and fights between the two women, the weak...

      Havana & Mambo

      When Liu Xiaodong painted oil paintings in Havana, there was a model who was tall, thin, and very Cuban. I remember that he also painted a family there. I remember that it was the streets of Cuba, old cars (bulky), old houses (colonial colors) , the waves are hitting the shore, walking on the nearby sidewalk, there is wind, there is music in my mind, not necessarily Cuban...

      What can I do to save you, the bloody Xiawanna?

      In fact, I think this film is very nice, so sweet, and to be honest, the plot is very bloody, I actually watched it bit by bit.

      I was pulled in just a little bit. At the same time, an animation with little content was saved like this. The

      picture is good. The art of this film is really strong, especially the color tone is amazing. Latino works always have Such a soul that you can't grasp, when the taste is heavy, it is very heavy. The rich and humid Cuban night makes...

      Obsessed with Latin music for a long time, naturally indulged in the movie, and the relationship between these two people is similar to my story. If I hadn't watched it with others, I would have shed...

      The first Spanish-language animation to be nominated for the Oscar for Best Animated Feature, of course, the Latin jazz style lost to Rango, the western jazz style. Many Jazz Lives, I can't help but imagine what the scene would be like if it was Watanabe, but the possibility of coming to Watanabe to shoot this kind of period musical with origin feelings is very low, because he himself grew up in an era where the east and the west meet. So the mix of things and atmospheres is why he is for...
