Have you seen this?!!
It's called En Tus Brazos (In Your Arms), and it is a touching short film: an amazing combination of animation and a realistically told, yet fanciful, tango love story. I'm dying to know more about the guys who did this. It's really first-rate.
I can't wait to hear what you think.

Here's the information I could find out about this movie:
Enjoy the beautiful French animation movie "En Tus Brazos" about how nothing can stop a tango dancing couple ... not even fate. It abounds with creativity, sentiment and argentine tango.
The greatest tango dancer of the 20's is stuck in a wheelchair after a tragic accident. Thanks to his wife, he recovers the use of his legs, the time of one imaginary dance, ending entreating passionately "Don't stop, hold me tight."
