Our Last Tango

When you see a name like Wim Wenders on a poster you could expect a great documentary like the Buena Vista Social Club.  However, this is a trick that some people do.

They get a well known director & get them to produce the film.  Add their name in a prominent position.  Normally at the top of the poster.  They then hide the name of the actual director lower down in a smaller font.

Quite often, the actual film itself is dreadful.  In this case that’s not the case.  It looks like a mix of an interview with María Nieves Rego & Juan Carlos Copes interspersed with dancers dancing the dance that they are best known for.  The TAngo

Our Last Tango“ is above all a love story. A story of love between the two most famous dancers in tango’s history. And the story of their tremendous love of tango.

María Nieves Rego (81) and Juan Carlos Copes (84) met when they were 14 and 17, and they danced together for nearly fifty years. In all those years they loved and hated each other and went through several painful separations but always got back together. No other man danced like Juan and no other woman danced like María! Eventually, he left her for good for a woman 20 years younger with whom he fathered two children.

Now, at the end of their lives, Juan and María are willing to open up about their love, their hatred, and their passion. In „Our Last Tango“ Juan and María tell their story to a group of young tango dancers and choreographers from Buenos Aires, who transform the most beautiful, moving and dramatic moments of Juan and Maria’s lives into incredible tango-choreographies.
