Goofs

The character that plays Carlos Gardel in the sequence for the concert, sangs a few lines in front of an old microphone, and then he walks from one side to another side in the stage, singing with the same voice amplification too far from the old microphone. In those days, the singers could not make such movements due to the short range of the 1930s microphones. 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.
