Chico & Rita Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

Chico and Rita is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of NewVideo with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.85:1. There's little more that you need to know about this transfer than it is practically perfect in every way. The animation is incredibly distinctive (as mentioned above in the main body of the review), with a lot of quasi-3D effects that seem to have come at least in part from elements of the image having been rotoscoped. (It's obvious that backgrounds were rendered in 3D some of the time, as well.) Line detail is incredibly sharp and well detailed, and colors are exceptionally vivid and lushly saturated. Character design is very distinctive and individually differentiated, but it's probably the settings that will most capture the viewer's interest, at least on first viewing. Everything from Havana's teeming harbors to the iconic Tropicana to New York and Las Vegas are rendered with incredible complexity and beauty. If you don't think an animated film can be a piece of Art, you really need to check out Chico and Rita.


Chico & Rita Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

Chico and Rita's original (mostly) Spanish language track is presented via an exceptionally effective DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track. While surround activity is brilliant in the film's many unbelievably exciting musical sequences, it's also rather smartly used in a number of the urban settings which dot the film, as well as some of the crowded club scenes where Chico and Rita forge their careers. Dialogue is very cleanly and clearly presented. Perhaps surprisingly, the film has a blast or two of LFE (prepare yourself for the release of steam when Rita's boat is leaving Cuba), and dynamic range is extremely wide. Fidelity is absolutely spot on in both the spoken and musical elements of the film.
