“Tanghi Argentini” by Guy Thys

One of my favorite short films in recent memory, the Oscar nominated 2006 live action short out of Belgium Tanghi Argentini probably borrows a little from Shall We Dance? (the wonderful, original Japanese version, I mean), but is so charming and so well told that it hardly matters. It’s 14 minutes long, so maybe wait ’til lunch, but otherwise I believe it’s safe for most workplaces. (There’s no nudie bits, and if there’s any swearing in it, it’s in Dutch.)

  1. Cool idea… I was a bit afraid, usually the tango thing is presented like a mixture of brazilian samba, cuban mambo and the cat from Shrek. But you can tell they actually got real dancers for the “milonga” scene!
