Laura Montalván: Fuentes! I heard you singing, but wouldn't dare to intrude.
Ricardo Fuentes: You did it right.
Laura Montalván: But I didn't want to leave without thanking you for what you did for me tonight.
Ricardo Fuentes: I did nothing for you! I can very well prevent someone from being robbed, but I wouldn't give anyone away. That's all.
Laura Montalván: Fuentes!
Ricardo Fuentes: No, Laura. Why do you feel entitled to be what you want everyone to see you are. Hasn't life given you youth, beauty, character? Do you think it's enough of an excuse to be able to live without rich lovers just ...

Gardel dances!
27 August 2015 | by (Barcelona) – See all my reviews

Carlos Gardel plays Ricardo Fuentes, who leaves Buenos Aires to go to Barcelona to open a tango bar. Gardel sings some beautiful songs "Por una cabeza", "Los ojos de mi moza", "Lejana tierra mía" and "Arrabal amargo", this one as a part of his tango bar show where he even dances a tango with Rosita Moreno (Laura Montalván) in a very elegant way. I saw this film because my grandmother loves Carlos Gardel and the unique way he sings tangos but not expecting very much and I have found it quite enjoyable. Plot is not silly but logical and nicely done. I have enjoyed the tango bar dancing and singing routine specially: I had never seen dancing tango in a so beautiful and elegant way, far from the usual suburban way. As a curiosity, you can see a few views of Barcelona main streets back in 1935. A curiosity and a must see film for all the Gardel fans.
