Homero Manzi, un poeta en la tormenta
A new film about the tango poet Homero Manzi was just released in Argentina. Manzi is the author of famous tangos like Malena, Sur and Barrio de tango. He worked with Troilo for several years, and in cooperation with Sebastián Piana, he revitalized the milonga genre with Milonga sentimental in 1931.
The film is apparently a combination of archive material and reconstruction of scenes from his life. It will be interesting to watch, I will probably wait until it is available on dvd, hopefully it won’t take that long.
