Tango Words

Not Here to be Loved

There have been many films which have featured tango in some way. This is a clip from Not Here to be Loved (Je ne suis pas là pour être aimé), which I saw not too long ago with a dear friend and occasional tango partner. The dancers are Géraldine Rojas & Javier Rodriguez, and music is Bahía Blanca by Carlos di Sarli.

Incidentally, there’s a comment on the YouTube page: “Film is NOT about tango, it is just about a man meeting a woman on a tango course.” (I have paraphrased very slightly.) Hmm, I suppose we all have different ideas of what tango is about…

It is, in any case, a beautiful, touching film which I would recommend to anyone.
