No consensus yet.
A convoluted tale of misplaced affections and mistaken identities that left the viewer with very little connection to the characters. This is definitely a musical and one for specialized tastes as the music is in the style of either Flamenco or Tango. The story itself reminded this viewer of the American President, with two men who are identical in looks, and in this case, talent, who wind up trading places. One is a famous singer, the other a lounge act performing the other man's songs that attracts the attention of the famous man's producer. Throw in a woman who settles for the imitation, but craves the real thing, and the ingredients are in place for a fun romp. Unfortunately, this somehow never gets there. Maybe it was the Latin temperaments of the principles. Maybe it was the chaste presentation. Maybe it was simply the language barrier. But somehow this viewer never found himself connected to the characters enough to really care how this played out. Let's just call it a morality tale that wasn't sure what moral it was trying to teach.
