Tango
Drama
MARIO SUAREZ launches himself into the making of the ultimate film about Tango. Using poignant, beautifully stirring tango music as a source of inspiration, Mario searches to find a narrative thread which will hold it all together. Images of his own life (his successful career, his mid-life crisis, his ex-wife) converge in Mario's movie, revolving around riveting dance numbers of requited and unrequited love. While out scouting for talent at a Milonga bar, Mario is introduced to Angelo Larroca, a gangster and financier of Mario's film. Angelo asks Mario to audition his mistress, Elena, a gifted and stunning young dancer. Mario and Elena become entangled in a passionate and dangerous love affair. Elena's dancing improves constantly, the choreography reaching greater heights of beauty and precision, and a wave of powerful creativity sweeps through the set. Rated PG-13 for sensuality, some disturbing images and brief language.
