Tango bar [videorecording]
Multi-layered flashbacks tell the story of the poet Ricardo Padín, the singer Antonio Estévez, and Elena, the woman they both love. Set in Buenos Aires, most of the film takes place at the Tango Bar, where the three protagonists present the show Esto es tango, a historical overview mingling "live" dance performances with film footage, the latter including performances by Rudolph Valentino, Charlie Chaplin, Gene Kelly, Laurel and Hardy, Fred Flintstone, and others.
