THE LAST APPLAUSE

Germany | 2008

Synopsis
El ultimo Aplauso tells the emotional story of a group of old forgotten tango singers from Buenos Aires, who for many years used to perform together in one of the city's most famous tango bars, the Bar El Chino.After the owner of the bar mysteriously died in 2001, it was taken over by his widow and her new partner. Just a couple of weeks later, this incredible place lay in ruins.El Ultimo Aplauso follows the lives of these forgotten tango singers from 1999 until today. It shows their struggle to earn a living after the closure of the bar during the country's biggest-ever economic crisis and their desperate dream to sing just one more time in front of an audience. After the old singers meet the young tango musicians of the Orquesta Ti­pica Imperial they are able to realize their dream: to give one last concert and to bask in the warm audience applause, maybe for the last time in their lives.
