Celebration of life

Movie \'Scent Of A Woman\'There’s a famous scene in the movie “Scent of a Woman” (a.k.a. 女人香), the tango scene. There’s conversation among three characters: an overbearing, blind retired Lieutenant Colonel; Charles, a young guardian the Colonel hired for the Thanksgiving weekend; and Donna, a beautiful lady they met in a restaurant in New York.

Colonel: So, Donna,

Donna: ah…

Colonel: do you tango?

Donna: No. I wanted to learn once, but –

Colonel: But?

Donna: But Michael didn’t want to.

Colonel: Michael, the one you’re waiting for.

Donna: Michael thinks the tango’s hysterical.

Colonel: Well, I think Michael’s hysterical.

Charles: Don’t pay any attention to him. Did I already say that?

Colonel: What a beautiful laugh.

Donna: Thank you, Frank.

Colonel: Would you like to learn to tango, Donna?

Donna: Right now?

Colonel: I’m offering you my services… free of charge. What do you say?

Donna: Ah… I think I’d be a little afraid.

Colonel: Of what?

Donna: Afraid of making a mistake.

Colonel: No mistakes in the tango, not like life. It’s simple. That’s what makes the tango so great. If you make a mistake, get all tangled up, just tango on.

Colonel: Why don’t you try? Will you try it?

Donna: All right. I’ll give it a try.

Tango scene of movie \'Scent Of A Woman\'Life is made up of ups and downs. If you’re having good times, enjoy and laugh. If you’re having down times, cry a bit, and move on. It assures you that you’re alive. Live with it, and celebrates the days you’re here.

However, no matter in good times or bad times, it’s still good time for tango. It’s celebration, it’s mourning. So why don’t you come tango with me?
