Christmas tango instrumental theme remix
Christmas Tango (Greek: Το Τανγκό των Χριστουγέννων, translit. To tango ton Hristougennon) is a 2011 Greek drama film directed by Nikos Koutelidakis.
The Christmas Tango is based on the novel by Yannis Xanthoulis.
An unexpected meeting between the sixty-five-year-old Lazaros Lazarou and a young man, on Christmas Day brings back hidden memories from 1970 when a sensual tango at a Christmas celebration at an army camp in Evros was the focus for the intersection of four lives: an introverted soldier; a harsh lieutenant; a strict and very conservative colonel; and Zoi Loggou (Vicky Papadopoulou), the colonel's wife.
Zoi Loggou's life is suffocating until she discovers a secret admirer in the barracks who forces one of his soldiers to teach him how to dance the tango for the Christmas party so that he can get close to Zoi and reveal his love for her.
Coming back to the present and Zoi today is aged about sixty-five and also suffering from Alzheimer’s disease.
