Movie Summary

Director:
Sally Potter
Released:
2012
Rating:
Not Available
Written and directed by Sally Potter (Orlando), The Tango Lesson is the story of a filmmaker, Sally (Sally Potter), who becomes dissatisfied with her latest screenplay (vividly illustrated in luscious color) and stumbles upon an Argentinean tango dancer (Pablo Veron). She places herself under Pablo’s tutelage and together they explore their spiritual and artistic connections. It soon becomes clear that they each want very different things from each other. Potter’s raw examination of the artist’s struggle for authenticity, set against the human frailties of ego, jealousy, lust and insecurity, makes for a tense drama — beautifully photographed in black and white and set in Paris and Buenos Aires. Newly remastered.
