Product Description

From the Back Cover

Flamboyant. Colorful. Sensual. This is the seductive world of the TANGO, stunningly brought to life by acclaimed director Carlos Saura ("Flamenco"), Grammy-winning composer Lalo Schifrin (TV's "Mission: Impossible") and Oscar-winning cinematographer Vittorio Storaro. Set against the backdrop of a director's passionate love affair with his art and the beautiful young woman who captures his heart, Tango is "a mesmerizing experience, a smoky lush blend of muted light and color, of intoxicating dance and the richest tango music you could ever imagine." - Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times.

4.0 out of 5 stars A movie about a Tango movie, but not really... June 21 2004
By A Customer
This movie is definitely different than most American movies. It is by far abstract. This is my warning to you folks. Be glad there is definitely Tango in this movie. This is a movie about the making of a Tango movie where the real life of the director is blended into the movie he's making. There's also a dark political message in there.
There are some dramatic Tango and some fun and playful tango during practice. There's a female voice over working on her craft. And an intro to the musicians. This movie really shows the audience every that goes into Tango, not just the dancers. Everyone. Including the lighting director. It has some social aspects of tango, although it could have gone deeper into this.
This movie is great for people exploring Tango, movie making, or the inner workings of a musical.
This movie won't appeal to people who only like mainstream or are irritated by abstract art or ideas. You might even walk away thinking..."was that a movie?"...not really.
There aren't many Tango movies out there. This is better than Assassination Tango. I would give this a 3star if there are better ones out there. The main actor in this movie is really good. I've never seen him before, but I can see he would fit in
perfectly with any American movie.
Now to answer a previous review:"No talent movie". I don't think this movie have to have the BEST TANGO dancers. Just because someone can Tango doesn't mean they can act. In fact, as the movie shows, they make mistakes in the audition and practice.
Would it be realistic to be perfect from dance school to audition to practice to show?

3.0 out of 5 stars An introspective movie, a bit tangled. Nov. 3 2002
By atmj
The movie begins and follows the life of a renown director of a play. He is reading from a script that describes what you are seeing as the first 5-10 minutes of this movie play.
As the movie continues, you are seeing part of his life and his lost love that is alluded to in the first minutes. You see the progress of the play he is doing and its various stages and acting. You also see some marvelous dancing and hear some great music, all to be part of this play.
I was amazed at the precision foot work of the tango. Wow. What also struck me and frequently strikes me in non-American made movies is the plain-ness of the non-leading actors and actresses. These are ordinary looking old and young people, more so than you see in American movies.
Ironically though the male leads are so-so and the female leads are drop-dead gorgeous. That's even worse than the Hollywood formula. When the woman and men are equal in looks I'll be impressed. Enough of that soapbox.
However on age, the best dancers were the oldest and the middle aged ones in the movie. This was marvelous to see. So often you equate great dancing with youth, however, here it is not so.
As the story goes on you follow the foibles of the director's love life. It is a mess and he complicates it further. The play is a marvelous backdrop for his moods.
As the movie goes on, you begin to wonder as you do with the opening scene how much is the play and how much is the movie. This wonderful transposition continues to the very end. However, at times you are quite confused.
In some cases the movie was a was a bit slow, overemphasizing a point. You don't really see why the director and his first girfriend break up and you don't really see what prompts his new relationship. Also, I would have liked even more dancing given the name of the movie.
It is a bit confusing, but the sound, the dancing and the feel are all well done.

3.0 out of 5 stars Mixed Impressions Aug. 29 2002
By anon
I've read others' reviews, and while I'm not adverse to this film, I do agree on many of the criticisms articulated here.
I'm familiar with the Latin American tradition of the entwinement of fantasy and reality, but I think Tango takes this to pretension. The anti-narrative structure is still yet a structure (contrary to what the producers intended, I supposed) that imprisons the tango from exploding in its full passionate intensity and exploring the characters' emotional states. The lack of emotional range was a disappointment for me. The detachment from the characters by rendering their subplot as a mere a prop of the pseudo-documentary is a technique I question. The film overly abstracted the human elements of the tango. The running commentary and voice-overs of Mia Maestro and the director were intentionally distracting, causing a detachment towards the characters and ultimately the experience of the dance form itself. I thought that this manipulative ploy made the film fail as an engaging experience for the audience by discarding the human element that is essential to understanding and feeling the tango. Since the quadruple (?) love story subplot is banal and pedestrian, the dance becomes vital. But unfortunately, the finest dancers of the film were not the main characters but the supporting cast of dancers - those dancers deserve to be recognized and be praised profusely for their skill and emotional investment towards their craft. While the choreography of some of the sequences made the heart race, the intrusion of the stupid subplot steals any potential emotional involvement I could have had for the film.
The presentation of the history and art of the tango lacked sincerity.

3.0 out of 5 stars Carmen dances the Tango
This DVD has elicited a controversial response, and no wonder. It is virtually a rehash of the same director’s CARMEN, using Tango instead of Flamenco to tell the story. Read more

I don't really understand why so many tango movies seem like they would be better as a series of short films. But I have yet to see a decent whole one. Read more
