      Sir Pop's Soul Love Under the Cloak of Love

      From the "Pearl of the Caribbean" Cuban Hakana to Broadway in New York to Hollywood in Los Angeles, California, "Love in Cuba" uses the ups and downs of the love story of piano musician Chico and talented singer Rita in the 1940s. It links the rise and fall of pop jazz in the process of social and cultural changes across the race.

      There is suspicion and willfulness in love, and narrow prejudice in music; love still has external forces to break up after confirming the eyes, and...

      "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...

      This is a clichéd love story. However, the 3D animation with delicate lines and strong 2D hand-painted style, together with beautiful and moving Cuban music, coupled with the strong Cuban style, make this 90-minute animation greatly appreciated. The picture of the heroine dancing in a yellow dress is very moving. Three and a half. 2012 Oscar Nominee for Best Animated...
