Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
In his retirement home, the former bartender (Pepe Soriano) at a brothel and bistro in a provincial town in Argentina in the 1930s regales his listeners with tales about the personalities there. Chief among them was the brothel's owner (Gian Maria Volonte), who seemed the master of all he surveyed, until he was smitten by the charms of a woman traveling with a tango band. As he tells these stories, they are shown onscreen. The film is much enhanced by lively tango performances by well known masters of the genre, including (Daniel Binelli).
