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.

What an inspiring film!
26 October 2002 | by (Brooklyn, NY) – See all my reviews

I found a video version of this exquisite Tanguedia (tango + tragedia) in the Avery Fisher Center of the NYU Bobst Library. Looking for insights into the life of Carlos Gardel, I found something infinitely more powerful. An entertaining, heartbreaking film that brought me a greater appreciation of my love of tango and the sadness of exile. The film tells the story of Argentinian exiles in Paris. People of artistic talent and temperament who come together to create a stage musical about the tangos of Gardel's exile. The fact that Gardel was never (historically) exiled from Argentina adds a little subversive mystery to the film. If I could find a print of the film I could probably provide a more detailed review. I guess this film is doomed to join "Love me Tonight" and countless other amazing works of musical film, spending eternity eluding the eyes of the viewing public, collecting dust in film monasteries. ¡Qué tanguedia!
