this is a wonderful film - for tango lovers as well as for people who like to ponder about life.
if you are looking for a movie with pretty girls, short skirts, and guns, you will be asleep before the first five minutes are over.
While the tango moves and general dance moves are great, what's really unique about this film is the commentary it makes about life and the power dynamics of relationships between men and women.
It also makes commentary on the film industry and what it means to be an artist in this day and age.
While it's true that Sally Potter is not a 21-year-old leggy blonde, she looks damn good at her age (I wish I had her body) and she is a very good actress. Pablito Veron also does a good job playing an arrogant ass. His dancing is awesome. Casting Pablo with a spring chicken as some have hinted, would have ruined the film all together.
Go Sally - make more of these films; I'd love to see your other commentary.
