Product Details


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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Carmen dances the Tango Feb. 19 2013
By David M. Goldberg TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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. It is shot in the same dreamy style that Saura used for FADO, FLAMENCO and EL AMOR BRUJO. It has its merits. It looks sharply good, with well-etched shadows and silhouettes to imitate the real dancers during the action sequences. It allows for extraordinarily unrealistic colors that infuse the whole product with a surrealistic poetry that is appealing, but vapid, so that you love it the first time; like it the second; and dislike it the third time of seeing. The superficiality ultimately gets to you. We are operating here on several levels, and it is often unclear at which one. There are actors who dance, actors who don’t, and dancers who do not act. There are at least three plots: that of the dancers; that of the non-dancers; and what goes on in the mind of the central character ---- the director “Mario”. The movements of these seemingly independent tectonic plates of narrative cause remarkable volcanic eruptions of drama from time to time, and they are the best moments in the film. They include dramatic scenes of slaughtered females being thrown into a communal grave by their uniformed killers; illegal immigrants rising up from the edge of the sea; and the final Carmenesque knifing of the central female character/dancer by a sinister assassin.
For me, the music and dancing are the least impressive. I have had the good fortune to visit Buenos Aires on several occasions, where I became fanatically devoted to this art form that offers such intricate opportunities to dancers, singers, and instrumentalists alike ---- individually and in ensemble.

1.0 out of 5 stars Tanco Feb. 12 2013
By James
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I have recently purchased this Move Tango thinking it was a movie but when I went to play it all I got was a commentary from the director and actors about the making of said movie and a short trailer about the movie. I was very disappointed and so was my wife this DVD is very misleading and should never be sold.
It almost seems like someone just copied from the original and missed loading the movie.
If I could find a way of being able to put a complaint into Amazon I would.

4.0 out of 5 stars For those who loved it and for those who don't May 24 2005
By Yefen
Format:DVD
I totally agreed with Warren of Tuson, AZ's review. It is a great artistic film although a bit editing would make it even better. For those who love Carlos Saura's film, I would highly recommend CARMEN which I like even more than TANGO. This is definitly not the type of film for A Customer from Chico, CA.who gave it 1-star.

4.0 out of 5 stars A movie about a Tango movie, but not really... June 21 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
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?

1.0 out of 5 stars Tedious with not much tango April 21 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
Long boring monologue about a director's midlife crisis with a young dancer. We don't see much dancing (or even much of her), just his dreary voice and self, with uninspired artsy pseudo-ballet tango fitfully in the background

5.0 out of 5 stars If you like edge, sharpen your shoes March 24 2004
Format:DVD
This film slaps you on a regular basis, not that you would need it to stay awake. The concepts are there, the test is "Can you follow along and not get lost?" You begin by thinking you're along for the playwrights ride, then you learn it's about love - in all it's forms - then you discover history in it's ugliest, and Tango is simply the disguise.
It is a bit drab in some areas but the alarm clocks along the way and the subtext is perfect for those who cut their "film" teeth on Fellini, Truffaut, and Bergman.
You will want to see it more than once just so you can get it all. There's more here than meets the eye.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great moments, no story June 25 2003
By A Customer
Format:DVD
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.
This is the most extreme of the lot: some gorgeous and touching scenes (I especially like the girls-only scene, and the old musicians jamming), but on the whole the movie is ridiculous and immature. It looks like it should be ripped for MTV.
