An absolutely delightful, beautiful dance movie set to the soundtrack of original recordings of Carlos Gardel's Mi Buenos Aires querido and Ástor Piazzolla's Libertango, two of the most iconic tangos in the history of the genre.

This is a dancer's paradise. Perhaps half the film displays beautiful dance scenes. Most is Tango and there are also some solo Flamenco parts. They dance in most beautiful and unique environments and circumstances. They play, the feel; they forgive and go on deeper in their relationship, which then goes into their partner dance. The story is kind of a mind game since Ms. Potter, the director, actor, writer of this film is all done by one woman. Photography is also very expressive and awe inspiring. It is going on my personal "classics". I know i will watch it again and again, esp. when I am 99 years old. One love.
