Let The Dance Begin

Empieza el baile

Three decades ago, Carlos and Margarita reigned as the world's most celebrated tango couple. Today, Carlos enjoys a second chance in Madrid, while Margarita lives in Buenos Aires, cloaked in solitude and obscurity. A sudden event compels the former partners to reunite, embarking on a journey through Argentina alongside their old friend, Pichuquito. This road trip forces them to confront their memories, fears, and, most importantly, their true desires.

"Empieza el baile" is a film that seamlessly balances tenderness with bitterness, occasionally laced with dark humor to soften its introspective core. It made its mark in the official selection of the 26th Málaga Film Festival, earning recognition through two awards: the Audience's Choice Award and Best Supporting Actor for Jorge Marrale.
