Goofs

Carlos Gardel is singing in the concert, the song is an obvious playback of the original Tango singer, Although in the song sounds a bandoneon and a violin, in the shot, Gardel is alone in the stage just with four guitar players. See more »

Tango, politics, love and hopes...
16 March 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Highly stylish, wonderful film. Dreamlike cinematography. Great performances. Best Gardel since Gardel. Cabrujas' original play has become sort of a cult, specially in Hispanoamerica. "The Day You Love Me" is a timeless story. Although is a period film (1930s),it is current and lucid. I saw it again recently and it hasn't aged. It is somehow intellectual, and some references might seem obscure to the average audiences. Great for tango lovers. No dance, though. The lyrics of the songs are fantastic. Gardel made several films for Paramount Studios in New York. Thanks to Gardel,the Tango permeated the international music scene and film industry.
