Piñeiro's Opera Prima and first commercial success
25 December 1998 | by See all my reviews

Director Marcelo Piñeiro's first movie tells the not so truthful story of "Tango", which is the pseudonym used by one of Argentina's earliest rock artists, credited to be the first to sing and compose rock in Spanish. Fernan Miras and Cecilia Dopazo, two relatively unknown actors at the time, jumped to fame in Argentina as a result of this film. The chemistry between them was amazing -which was not surprising since they became lovers during the filming of the movie. Even though none of Tango's real songs are included (Piñeiro was not given the rights), the soundtrack is a good mix of contemporary and recycled Argentinian rock songs. With a careful post-production done in London, it marked also the end of Argentinian movies sounding really bad and being even hard to understand. The movie is not so much the life of the singer as it is of a metaphoric legend. That of the artist that would not sell himself, and would remain truth to his love and beliefs. While situated in the past, with its talk of corruption, opression and false appearances, the movie stroke a chord in Argentina in 1993, making it the most successful movie of the year in that country.
