A Nostalgic and Heartfelft Effort
2 October 2005 | by See all my reviews

Ada Falcon was a talented and popular Argentine tango singer of the 1920s and 1930s. She performed with the country's best musicians, starred on national radio shows, and appeared in movies shown across Latin America. In 1942, however, Falcon abruptly left show business and never performed again.

Before dropping out of sight, she led a glamorous, lavish life and reportedly counted tango star Carlos Gardel and Argentine composer Francisco Canero among her lovers. Falcon's green eyes fascinated both men and her fans, too. Those same eyes inspired the tango that serves as the title of this documentary by Argentine filmmaker Sergio Wolf.

Falcon's disappearance and the rumors surrounding it intrigue Wolf and he sets out to learn more about the singer's career and her later life. With a cameraman in tow, Wolf visits the theaters and radio studios where Falcon once sang and the homes and cities where she lived. He also talks to musicians, neighbors, and others who knew Falcon and includes clips from her movies and concerts.

This nostalgic and heartfelt effort will likely enthrall both Argentines of a certain age and hardcore tango fans of the period. Others may find the subject too obscure, but they will certainly be fascinated by Wolf's discovery of how Falcon spent the last half of a very long life that ended with entombment in Recoleta, the most famous and exclusive cemetery in Buenos Aires.
