Tanghi Argentini

Today I saw Tanghi Argentini, one of the Oscar® nominees in the Live Action Short Film category.

In this 14-minute wonder, Belgium's Guido Thys brings us the sweet story of a man desperate to learn the tango so he can impress a date he's met on the Internet (with a screen name like "Bing Crosby" you can't help but root for him).

After much persuasion, he convinces a co-worker to teach him the crucial moves and what unfolds after that is pure delight.

This easily earned its nomination.
