EL TANGO DE MI VIDA (THE TANGO OF MY LIFE)

Hernán Belón
Argentina 2009 89 min.

EtvWhat could an old woman, an adolescent, a housewife, a lawyer, an astrologist, a chicken salesman and a schoolteacher have in common? They’ve all got an engagement at “La Casona de Fernando”, an old restaurant in Buenos Aires that is hosting a contest for amateur tango singers. The song of the first round is “For Someone Special,” that of the second is “The Saddest Tango in the World,” and in the final round the participants will have to sing “The Tango of My Life”, in a musical battle to win this exciting competition.
