This film starts out with striking and lingering close-up footage of beautiful women and men dancing tango. From there it moves from strength to strength in an enjoyable storyline.<br/><br/>Never over-explaining, manipulating, or condescending to the audience, it presents an interesting, human, believable, and relatable story of an uptight-ish man named Dino, and his extended family, his career passions and worries, and the things that burst him out of his routine.<br/><br/>This film held my attention throughout in its various but never overlong storylines. We slowly learn, through inferring from Dino's piecemeal interactions with his relatives, what his backstory is and why he is in a bit of a psychological, physical, and emotional rut.<br/><br/>Then an enticing but out-of-his-league tango dancer/teacher he accidentally watches one day awakens his passions, but she is far too elusive and unobtainable.<br/><br/>Nevertheless, she has a remarkable effect on him, which is the joy and light of the film. The final scene of the movie is so wonderful I have watched it several times. Great film, great directing, and great script!<br/><br/>A real pleasure and a rare find.
