Happy Together by Wong Kar-Wai preceded his award-winning In the Mood for Love and is a haunting, longing tale of two foreigners lost in both Buenos Aires and their pursuit of happiness.
A great portrait of the melancholy side of the city, complete with a soundtrack by Frank Zappa. Decidedly arthouse fare, but a crackingly beautiful film all the same.
Happy Together can surely be purchased online.
Everybody has been raving about all the new films coming out of Argentina -r oad movies, neo-realistic dramas, amateur actors and so on. But before you even get on the plane, try to see the film Sur - it's a lyrical evocation of Buenos Aires' lost tangi soul. It will help you to see ghosts where there are voids and see beauty where there is only damage.
Good video libraries, you can buy it in BA on the side streets of Florida
