Love, loneliness, politics, and, of course...Tango
12 January 1999 | by (Bogotá, Colombia) – See all my reviews

This movie has everything you can ask for. The direction and the cinematography are excellent, the soundtrack includes Astor Piazzolla (He was a revolutionary of the tango, besides of a genius) and Roberto Goyeneche, one of the greatest voices in Tango's History.

When Argentina became a democratic country, after a long time of dictatorships, the lifes of many people changed. There was a new hope, a new beginning. This movie tells just one of many stories. If you haven't seen it, you should, I promise you won't regret it, and maybe you could thank me later. And, of course, buy the soundtrack if you want to have a masterpiece of Tango
