Opening on a panoply of female tango singers from the ’20s and ’30s, pic compares their emotional recitals to that of blues singers like Billie Holliday. Most celebrated among them was Falcon, a green-eyed blonde who cultivated the aura of a Hollywood star. Period specialists say her Garbo-like early retirement was caused by an unhappy love affair with her married manager, Pinicho Canaro, an incorrigible womanizer. On camera, Wolf traces Falcon to a small town in Cordoba, where she went to lead a life of poverty linked to the Franciscan order. Intriguing finale, sees the aged recluse found in a provincial home for the elderly, just prior to her death.
