A moving adult story of thwarted relationships, this film is beautifully nuanced at every turn.  The story is based on an Australian play.
lantanaLE BAL (1983)

This story takes place in a hypothetical Parisian dance hall; its plot is communicated through mime, period ballroom dances, and pop music... a clever yet poignant social commentary of prewar, postwar, and modern times.
