The customer is waiting for him to come back...

The film won an Oscar for best short animation. Tango is a story about a room where many inhabitants have lived for years. But the director doesn't show their histories in time sequence. What happened to particular people is shown along with repetitions of stories of those who lived there before and the reality is reduced to absurdity and grotesque.

director:Jerzy Kucia
production:Telewizja Polska - Agencja Filmowa, Agencja Produkcji Filmowej, Jerzy Kucia Produkcja Filmów
sales:Telewizja Polska
language:Polish

The film shows the relativity of events - facts, inconstancy of situations and impressions. The meaning of incident is stressed here, as incident is not only a playful element, but above all it lies in the dramatic uncertainty of life. The events are shown in an "image and sound symphony".
