Buenos Aires, November 2001. Argentina is embroiled in crisis, with the peso plunging deeper and deeper. Julio Färber, the charismatic bandoneon player of the "Vecinos de Pompeya," a five-piece working-class tango band, is trying to keep his head above water, but every month he is earning less and less from their gigs as well as from the traditional shoe shop he inherited from his father. At the very moment, he decides to leave his beloved Buenos Aires forever, it appears that life is conspiring against him: overnight, the government freezes all bank accounts in the whole country, preventing Julio from purchasing the flight tickets and sparking violent protests throughout the town. And Mariela, a witty young woman, and feisty cab driver, bumps into his car at full speed, damaging Julio’s last possession of value before stealing his heart…


Adiós Buenos Aires was inspired by the real tragic events that shook Argentina in late 2001. The government froze all the country's bank accounts from one day to the next, which became known in Argentina as the "Corralito" (little stall). Three weeks later, the December 19 and 20 pot-banging protests in the streets brought down the government at the time.


"Adiós Buenos Aires has some very beautiful shots, several outstanding moments of humor, and some very emotional scenes." —Escribiendo Cine
