Description: Using a collage of individual Argentine exiles in Paris as well as pulsating tango music and talented dancers, director Fernando E. Solanas has patched together a diverse picture of humanity trying to cope with political and social tensions. This disparate group is in the process of mounting a stage play called Gardel's Exile. The playwright, Juan Dos (Juan #2, Miguel Angel Sola) is busy scribbling away in Argentina and smuggles out his results to Juan Uno (Juan #1) in France. Maria is one of the actresses in the play who has been so long in France she is neither French nor Argentinian. Mariana is Maria's mother, and the lead actress in Gardel's Exile, and she is having an affair with Juan Dos. Another exile, Gerardo, is desperate to find his granddaughter who was born in prison. And so it continues -- an array of people trying to make sense of their lives in exile.~ Eleanor Mannikka, All Movie Guide
