Tango | 1998 | PG-13 | - 3.4.5

In this celebration of the Tango, a broken-hearted director casts the mistress of his film's financial backer in the lead role and then falls in love with her. With Miguel Angel Sola, Cecilia Narova, Mia Maestro, Juan Carlos Copes and Juan Luis Galiardo. Directed by Carlos Saura. In Spanish with English subtitles. [1:45]

SEX/NUDITY 3 - Some sexual innuendo. Kissing, sometimes passionately (in one scene, we see two women kiss). A woman straddles a man sitting on a chair and kisses him passionately. A shirtless man and a woman in a tank top talk, embrace and kiss passionately in bed. We see a few women wearing cleavage-revealing tops and short skirts.

VIOLENCE/GORE 4 - In a dream and in a dance production, a man stabs a woman and she collapses on the floor (in one of the scenes, we see fake blood on the woman's shirt). In a dance production, we see two men sparring with knives, limp bodies being thrown into a mass grave, people pretending to be shot and people being shoved and thrown on the ground. Twice, a man grabs a woman's arms, holds her against him and tries to kiss her; both times, the woman struggles and eventually pushes the man away.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
