In this musical drama, a tango tribute set in Buenos Aires of the 1930s, factory worker Juanita (Aitana Sanchez-Gijon) falls for singer Renzo (Dario Grandinetti), who resembles famed tango superstar Carlos Gardel (who died in a 1935 plane crash). When Gardel is unable to do a radio commercial, Renzo substitutes, which brings enough fame to propel the group on a Latin American tour. At a Bogotá hotel, where Gardel himself is staying, Renzo's big chance arrives. Director: Jaime Chávarri. 1997. 93 minutes
