Storyline

In the sorrow of exile, a group of Argentinians in Paris seek solace and connection to their culture by staging a set of tangos. The film alternates between their vibrant rehearsals and their circumscribed lives in low-rent apartments, underemployed, fitfully communicating with families back home, trying to make do with what they hope are only temporary arrangements in a foreign land.

One of the greatest films I've seen
13 August 2001 | by (Moscow, Russia) – See all my reviews

Already from the opening scene of tango dance on a Paris bridge one can understand that this is an outstanding film. Pain, sorrow, laugh, sex, solitude, nostalgia, music - all about the exiliados' life in Paris. And if you know a bit of Spanish the lyrics of the songs will stay long with you.
