Fernando E. Solanas
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. Written by
Solanas made a wonderful piece of art, not just a movie, but a theater play and a tango as well.
The anguish of exile, trying to show all the melancholy charged with irony and good humor. As a Discépolo's tango.
Marvelous, oneiric. A way to learn more about this kind of music that is famous around the world as "the dance of passion", but showed in its pure essence, with three of its' men, Gardel, Discépolo and Piazzolla.
