Carlos Gardel meets Imperio Argentina
20 October 2015 | by (Barcelona) – See all my reviews

Although it was the second time Carlos Gardel and Imperio Argentina met in films, the first one was a lost short called La casa es seria (actually only the audio is preserved, as the film was lost in a war bomb raid in France). Here they sing together the tango "Silencio" (silence) and it was the only time Gardel sang a duet. The film plot is better than most of the other Gardel films, even includes a crime and is solved in a fine way. I like the end specially, that connects the last scene of the film with the first one using the vinyl record playing the tango "Melodía de arrabal" (suburban melody) and because this one and Tango Bar are the best quality DVD copies of all Carlos Gardel movies.
