Storyline

A few weeks before Christmas, André, a chubby middle-aged office worker in Ghent, arranges an Internet date with a woman who tangos. Trouble is, André doesn't know how to dance, so he begs Frans, a co-worker, to teach him. Frans refuses - he's a superior type, proper, erect, immaculately, separate from the others, while Andre is a bit of a shlub. André calls Frans's bluff, calling him boring and staid, so Frans accepts the challenge. They practice long hours; the passion of the tango infuses André and when the night comes, he's ready. Frans accompanies him to a nightclub where he meets Suzanne. She and André begin to dance. Then, something goes wrong. Is this all for naught? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Andre is an invisible office worker living a lonely existence when he engages a woman on the Internet. Problem is she likes to Tango and he can't. He gently cajoles a still cynical co-worker into teaching him. The big night arrives and all does not go according to plan. Or does it?

Tanghi argentini is a whimsical quarter hour film that swiftly moves along with humor and pathos, approaches tragedy, changes course and leaves you with a smile on your face. The actors establish character swiftly and the montage of tango lessons at the office are skillfully edited for humorous effect, making this sweet story hard to find fault with in any way.
