Not far from the Obelisk, in the old neighborhood of Barracas, one finds "Los Laureles," which in 120 years has gone from being a pulpería de gauchos (a gaucho saloon of sorts) to a restaurant offering the best beef. Singers, guitar players, famous tango singers, & neighbors dancing tango can all be found here. It was declared a Site of Historical & Cultural Interest and forms part of a UNESCO project.
What if childhood friends became famous tango singers? Could they endure the worldly pressures of fame, fortune and women and have their friendship still survive? Tango singer Carlos Gardel & partner Jose "Maestro" Razzano are passionate about Giovanna "Madame Jeanne" Ritana in Buenos Aires brothels & bars. The menage-a-trois climbs social eschelons in Europe, exporting tangos to Parisian High-Society, testing their friendships & loyalty. (An original script by John R. Lacey)
