The Tango Lesson | 1997 | PG | - 1.2.1

Sally Potter stars in her autobiographical story of a film director who falls in love with the Tango and the talented young dancer who teaches it to her. Also with Pablo Veron, Carolina Lotti, Gustavo Naveira, Fabian Salas and Carlos Copello.

SEX/NUDITY 1 - Two kisses; one is passionate.

VIOLENCE/GORE 2 - Three times, we hear a gunshot and then see a woman fall down; in another scene, we hear a gunshot and then see a woman standing in a boat collapse into the water. A woman falls down some steps and appears to be dead (no blood or injuries are visible). We briefly see two men's blistered, raw feet.

LANGUAGE 1 - One scatological reference is seen in a subtitle.

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Dancing, directing films, falling in love, dedication and determination.

MESSAGE - It truly does take two willing people to tango well.

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.
