Tangos - el exilio de Gardel

Fernando Solanas had to spend several years in exile, some of them in Paris. There he tells us the story of people from Argentina spending their time in Paris and longing for Buenos Aires. It's a dancing groupe that works on a piece of an Argentinian composer, and music and dance play an important role. Politics of course too. One of the strongest movies about living in exile. «Music and dance are splendid.» The New York Times More
