Love, jealousy and wanting to be in two places at once / France / 2010 / 12’ / 4:3

A young man recounts his story of love gone wrong. His marriage has been quietly growing lifeless, when his wife proposes that they attempt to rekindle their passion through the dance that first brought them together, the tango. But not any old tango, rather a more risqué partner-swapping form of the dance, with different partners in separate venues.
