Storyline

Antonio returns to Argentina from political exile and reunites with his old partner Ricardo at Ricardo's bar. With several talented dancers, the partners stage a cabaret. Ricardo narrates and Antonio sings, taking their audience through the history and meaning of the tango, a dance from the mean streets of the poor. Now that Antonio is back, there is also tension with Ricardo, because both have a history with Elena, and both love her. After the singing, the dancing, and the talking ends, with which man will she want to tango? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

A truly BAD film - Ed Wood has been reincarnated!
9 February 2002 | by (Puerto Rico) – See all my reviews

You know you are in trouble when in a film, the director includes pieces of other films, including cartoons, of people doing the tango. Isn't that what Ed Wood used to do--incorporating pieces of what he found on the cutting floor to fill his movie? And he was, supposedly, the worst director in the history of Hollywood. Well, folks, we have the runner up in the man who directed Tango Bar.
