Without the twilights and the nights of Buenos Aires, there would be no tango.
(J. L. BORGES)
That most erotic and mysterious of dances, the tango, came to life in the suburbs and backstreets of Buenos Aires. This Arena Special traces its colourful and bizarre life story, through the work of its greatest poets, dancers and musicians. At the beginning of the century the tango was danced only in the harbour brothels, then, sophisticated in fashionable nightclubs and adopted by major poets and writers, it entered its golden age in the 30s and 40s. For the Argentines it's more than just a dance - the poet Discepolo calls it 'a feeling of sadness which can even be danced to'. Away from tourists' eyes, in their own cafes and dance halls, today's unknown 'stars' of tango tell their stories, among them the charismatic Juanita 'La Negra'. The strange and magical history of tango is told through the words of poets, rare archive film of its greatest stars of the past, and specially choreographed scenes by a modern master,
Juan Carlos Copes.

Occupied Norway, 1944. Seven-year-old Ida and her brother come to live with their mother who has found work in the north. Ida finds it hard to make friends among the local children who all know her mother is a collaborator: Ida doesn't even know what the word means.
Laila Mikkelsen 's sensitive observation of the minutiae of adult betrayal, seen through the naive eyes of a child, is based on a true story. As Ida, Sunniva Lindekleiv gives a truly astonishing performance which made her the darling of the critics.
