Ricardo Darin is acknowledged as a great actor in Argentina. His popularity has raised from being another face in soups to become one of the leading stars on stage and in films. He has also chosen wisely every movie and role. El baile de la Victoria, on the other hand, seems to be a film too much influenced by the director's vision, don't letting most of the audience discover its charm. The movie seems -as obviously those followers of Trueba would disagree- dull and lacking any real substance. Text is also pointless and does not convey any big ideas regarding the historic themes approached. I did not finish viewing the film.
