Here there are authentic funny situations coupled with drama.
This picture entertains. The director/writer wanted to show us Argentina. He decided to do it according to what he read once...that the Tango was the Joy to be/of being Sad. In Spanish: "La Alegría de Estar Triste." The personalities in his story seem real and are all lovable. The leading actress is lovely and voices the fresh original tangos like a feminine Gardel. I was able to congratulate these two in the 2006 Fifty-Fifth International Film Week in Valladolid, Spain. Three other actors and the author of the music were present too, but I didn't see them. Not often can one thank the creators in person and with hugs and handshakes for their fulfilling work. I could have mentioned many high points of the film to them, but only said that I wish it were possible to meet the characters of the film as they were all special and I listened with enthusiasm so as not to miss a single word of their dialogues. The photography and the casting is exceptional too. I appreciated the many surprising "turns" in the film. And I don't want to signal out any character as all contributed to this good film.
