| Wonderful movie
This movie is very sad but also. It is the opposite of anything that comes out of our movie culture. Beautiful music and very moving. If you are a fan of tango music you will also enjoy the scenes of Roberto Goyeneche( "El Polaco") haunting tango singing that are interspersed during the movie. At times this movie works almost like a tango musical. When I say musical don't expect to see people dancing or singing gaily in the streets. Since the music is mostly tango (there also a Milonga song "El Tartamudo" The Stutterer The movie is not a linear narrative. It is very existential and atmospheric.

I also recommend movies by Eliseo Subiela: " No te mueras sin decirme donde vas." Don't die without telling me where you are going
