Subsequent characters appear in a poorly-decorated room, intertwining but never colliding, all possessed by never-ending rituals.

Storyline

Against the backdrop of a confined and minimalist room, a plethora of activities takes place. Little by little, the small chamber is occupied by diverse characters whose looping and overlapping daily routine generates a perfectly choreographed ballet, stunningly arranged and orchestrated by the cosmic tango of life. Written by Nick Riganas

One of my favorite animated shorts!
30 December 1998 | by dionysos-2See all my reviews

Tango is a fantastic short, animated as a collage of live action film clips. It begins simply, with one boy retrieving a lost ball in a repeating pattern. He is joined by others who also follow repeating patterns of their own. It climaxes with a screen packed with individuals all going about their business in complete ignorance of the actions of the others, and ends as simply as it began. All this is done without words (except for the repeated shout of a man falling from a table). If you have the opportunity, I highly recommend this artistic short.
