Tango Bar

Raul Julia, Valeria Lynch, and Ruben Juarez star in this rather enervating musical (1988) about the tango—a Puerto Rican-Argentinean production directed by Marcos Zurinaga from a script he wrote with Jose Pablo Feinnman and Juan Carlos Codazzi. Set in Buenos Aires, the film centers on a cabaret show and its three stars, who form a menage a trois offstage. The main problem is that, as in many low-budget backstage musicals, the narrative is so slight that it barely seems to justify its existence. But some of the actual tangos are well executed and nicely photographed, and there's a series of enjoyable clips from American, European, and Latin American films in which tangos are featured.
