Set in Buenos Aires, Argentina, the film tells the story of director Mario Suarez's quest to make the ultimate tango film. Lonely after his wife (one of the film's stars) has left him, Mario must find the themes that will hold the film together, while simultaneously permitting his musicians and dancers the freedom of expression that is necessary to satisfy the tango-hungry Argentine audience. Things become complicated when Mario falls in love with Elena, a beautiful and talented young dancer who is the girlfriend of the powerful and dangerous Angelo Larroca, an investor in the picture. And Mario's creative vision is challenged by his investors when he plans a scene that recreates Argentina's dark years of political suppression and "disappearances."

Took me a while to figure it out but, my copy (from BOTH) plays the commentary ALL the time (couldn't turn it off, tried several things) so I didn't get to just see the movie.

I will try inform KCLS and try another copy,

The images from this movie are still with me and so is the story of the dance. A move for those who love tango.

I had seen this dvd many years ago, but this time, I could not get it to play without the actors comments. However, I realized I had already seen it, and I recall I didn't much like it the first time; too artsy, and not true to the tango dance itself. There are better dvds about Argentine Tango.

There aren't many dances in this movie since it's about the life of a dance instructor and his dancers.
The dances are superbly executed. The music is excellent. I bought this DVD after viewing a rented copy from Block Busters.

A nice show, but really for the dance aficianados. I couldn't really interpret some of the dance.
