One of Carlos Gardel last films
25 September 2015 | by (Barcelona) – See all my reviews

Although the plot is a tearful drama and would have deserved a much better script, some of Carlos Gardel songs worth viewing the film. The fact that it was released after Gardel's tragic death increased its popularity. Tito Lusiardo, who also appeared in Gardel's film Tango Bar, plays again the role of his friend. A young Astor Piazzolla appears in this film. He was supposed to join Carlos Gardel during the company tour, but his father didn't allow him to go, saving him from death. The story is about a rich man's son who wants to be a singer and marriages a dance girl. But life passes and success is reluctant to show up, causing money problems and leading to a tragic outcome. Carlos Gardel sings two of his most memorable tangos in this film: "El día que me quieras" and "Volver".
