Astor Piazzolla - The Years of the Shark

Genre: Documentary
France, 2017, 57'
Directed by: Daniel Rosenfeld

The Argentine bandoneon player and composer Astor Piazzolla (1921-1992) revolutionized the tango. His tango nuevo, with its jazz and classical influences, made him a controversial figure in his own country, as his revolution clashed with tradition.




For this documentary, Piazzolla’s son Daniel drew on his private collection. Unique footage of numerous performances and intimate family films combine with archive material to paint a vivid portrait of Piazzolla: self-assured, obstinate, passionate and a true virtuoso.
