    1. That animation looks like it is all rotoscoped.
      Nevertheless, I would like to go see it. I will probably be going Wednesday night- anyone else?

    2. Yes, it is rotoscoped, David. There are some detailed production notes at Cincy World Cinema's website:
      It looks neat anyway. I'm a casual fan of Mariscal's design work and I love Latin-tinged jazz too. (less enthusiastic about bebop).

      There is also a comic book version for those of us who may not be able to get away on Valentine's Day. :-(ómic-chico-and-rita/

    3. Hey, did anyone go see it? I forgot that I had to teach on Wednesday night. Was it any good?

    4. I did not see it but plan to buy it when it is on DVD for an animation night.
