Last Tango in Paris

Movie Summary

Director:
Bernardo Bertolucci
Released:
1973
Rating:
NC-17
Last Tango In Paris is a 1972 film directed by Bernardo Bertolucci and starring film legend Marlon Brando as Paul, a hotel owner and widower who is still mourning his wife's suicide. When looking at an apartment to rent in Paris, Paul meets Jeanne (Maria Schneider), a young French girl who is engaged to be married and is also interested in renting the apartment. They start a stormy and anonymous sexual affair. The graphic and violent sex scenes originally earned the film an 'X' rating from the MPAA (Motion Picture Association of America) when released in the United States. In 1981 MGM released an R rated version of the film, and in 1997 the original version of the film's rating was changed to NC-17 for explicit sexual content.

    The New York Times Vincent Canby

    Bernardo Bertolucci's Last Tango in Paris is a beautiful, courageous, foolish, romantic, and reckless film.

  • 50

    Variety

    Bernardo Bertolucci's Last Tango in Paris is an uneven, convoluted, certainly dispute-provoking study of sexual passion in which Marlon Brando gives a truly remarkable performance.
