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.

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.

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?

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.
