Editorial Reviews

The sensuality and stylized ritual of the tango are captured in this illuminating documentary. Director Jorge Zanada spent years researching and recording the tango's place in Argentine culture and exploring the machismo that drives the dance. Most riveting are the milongueros-the amateur dancers who preserve the pure, traditional steps. Their intimate stories about their personal experiences reveal the intensity that feed their individual tango styles. Numerous tango aficionados, including actors Robert Duvall and Juan Carlos Copes (star of Broadway's TANGO ARGENTINO), make special appearances. A passionate valentine to what Martha Graham called "the most beautiful dance of this century."

Format: VHS Tape
I was bemused by another review of this film which asserted "an inebriated Robert Duvall portrays an aging gigelo, pandering to old ladies."
Duvall's portion, a very small portion, merely relates his <Duvall's> reasons for visiting Argentina, to learn Tango at it's cradle of inception. The interview is obviously in a hotel room, where he speaks compactly about his love and interest in Tango. He "plays" no part. He does not dance.
This video is no more than an amazing documentary and cultural commentary on the "Milonga" style of Tango; it's past, it's future and simply dazzling performances of now aging non-professional stars of Tango, who are passing the torch of this cultural heritage of Buenos Aires on to another generation. There is an inate sadness in the interviews of the older "Asfalto" Milongueros, the dancers, who see this dance form slipping into disuse, in favor of the European and American style; something that the, the old timers, cannot relate to. Backed by excellent music and stunning exhibitions by "Portenos", this film is a "keeper", to be played over and over again, for it's dance, it's music, it's form and the shear enjoyment of Tango.

This was filmed in 1988 in a period when Argentine tango was in the infancy of its comeback. Most recent documentaries of tango tell its history from the perspective of the immigrants to Bs. As. and the references to the brothels. This one however has less on that part of the history and more about the period of the "lost generation" characterized by the draw of other musical/dance forms and the period in which tango was forbidden in Argentine for political reasons. Most documenatries ignore the political period with its arrests. Throughout the narrator as the dance asks "Who or what is tango."

The strengths of this DVD include that part of the history, the interview with Robert Duvall in which he elaborates on what drew him to the dance and a wonderful milonga. Stage shows like to present male dancers as guapos, but this elimates the flashiness. I enjoyed the inclusion of the interviews of Juan Carlos Copes and the music of Daniel Binelli. Copes relates his conversations about the Russian dance style and the discovery of Julio Bocca.

The film has the feel of the rediscovery of a lost family connection.
