A new trailer has been released for Our Last Tango, which arrives in cinemas on 22nd September, directed by German Kral and Executive Produced by Wim Wenders.
Our Last Tango is a story of love between the two most famous dancers in tango’s history. And the story of their tremendous love of tango.
María Nieves Rego (83) and Juan Carlos Copes (86) met when they were 14 and 17, and they danced together for nearly fifty years. In all those years they loved and hated each other and went through several painful separations but always got back together.
No other man danced like Juan and no other woman danced like María! Eventually, he left her for good for a woman 20 years younger with whom he fathered two children.
Now, at the end of their lives, Juan and María are willing to open up about their love, their hatred, and their passion. In Our Last Tango Juan and María tell their story to a group of young tango dancers and choreographers from Buenos Aires, who transform the most beautiful, moving and dramatic moments of Juan and Maria’s lives into incredible tango-choreographies.
These beautifully-shot choreographies compliment the soul-searching interviews and documentary moments of the film to make this an unforgettable journey into the heart of the tango.
While telling Juan and Maria’s story, Our Last Tango also traces the history of the tango and the profound influence the couple had on the dance in the past 50 years. Juan and María were the first to take the tango out of the clubs of Buenos Aires and bring the dance on to the world’s theatre stages.
Born during the tango’s golden age, when the dance was the “diversion of the poor people”, they gave up everything to devote their lives to it. But, then came rock ’n’ roll and, with it, the decline of this passionate dance from Argentina.
But, María and Juan and their companions never gave up. No one was more obsessive and determined than Juan, who created the first tango-stage-show, which carried the tango out into the world.
