Fados – DVD Review


A drama steeped in Portugal’s Fado music culture.


I thought this was actually a movie about Tango, but it’s actually a movie about Portuguese music, known as Fado, which looks very much like “Tango and Flamingo” at least to my somewhat naive eyes, but it’s not. If you love “Tango and Flamingo”, you’ll probably love this movie. I thought the dancing was wonderful. I thought some of the singing was wonderful. It’s only 88 minutes, but feels longer. Unless you’re a true fan this is probably one that you want to pass on. If you’re a true fan you’re going to think it’s three stars. If you’re going to a movie to enjoy it you’re probably going to think it’s one star, so I better give it one or you’re going to be mad at me.
