Osvaldo Montes approaches to “Yo soy así, Tita de Buenos Aires” from three complementary
fronts. The first one is devoted to working alongside Mercedes Funes, an actress
without musical training who dared to get wholeheartedly under Merello’s skin,
including performing her immortal songs. She is, without a doubt, the film’s soul,
astonishing in her bravery and freshness, and helped by the composer’s complicity
and unwavering dedication. His second task was to put into context the movie’s times
through a series of narrative themes, composed by himself, where he dares to write
foxtrots, tangos, waltzes and any sort of musical element useful to set the stage. This
second part includes a revisited version of the classic theme Volver, performed emotionally by Funes and Leonardo Pastore, in their respective roles as Tita and Carlos
Gardel. It is a beautiful film climax where Morello sings to an audience formed by all
the already gone people who were important in her life.
However, Montes doesn’t resist some experimentation, and for the end credits he
weaves a version of They say about me, re-titled as Remix, where he uses electronic
elements in an original attempt to update a song which was already a reference.
There is still a third front, the score, which Montes does not forget during recording,
divided between Buenos Aires and Madrid. It’s worth to mention pieces as Revolution
’55, on piano and bandoneon, or Potpourri Tita, which begins with a beautiful clarinet
solo. The strings are also used in Ni siquiera un hijo, where the heroine evokes her
sacrifices in life, especially the fact of not being a mother as the price to pay for a life of success. This is something also addressed from a melancholic point of view through
piano and strings in an exquisite, delicate theme, Tita, despierta. A golden touch for
Osvaldo Montes’ career, whose work here provides a show of respect for one of his
country’s most charismatic performers and, at the same time, reminds us of his unconditional nature as a film composer. A real luxury.
