Very simplistic, but in no way disregardable
15 December 2010 | by chetoscoSee all my reviews

The film is not about Maradona, it's about Gardel. The drawn parallel is doubtful: the insiders of Argentinean football would compare Gardel rather to Ricardo Bochini. Rodolfo Pagliere made a couple of low-budget movies about tango in 90s, another one being "Quereme asi (Piantao)" about Astor Piazzolla's life, and ever since suspended his directing activity. The style is romantic surrealism bordered upon documentalism, with a lot of Gardel's footage, including pre-catastrophe shots. The best part, in my opinion, is the duo with Rosita Moreno from "El dia que me quieras". Although the budget is low, it includes Rodolfo Mederos' score as well as Alejandro Dolina's and Esther Goris' participation, let alone Maradona himself. Maybe the worth is not in the film itself, which lasts for about one hour and something, but in prompting to revise Gardel's heritage. Shouldn't be ignored by tango addicts and Gardel's completists.
