I watched Clementine Tango after having seen the director's following opus about a teenage boy SHEM, and after having read the reviews which are outstanding (from the NY times to Jean-Paul Sartre's Les Temps Modernes, everybody saluted the movie as a masterpiece. It's very well directed with great photography and cabaret scenes really stunning. The love story is a bit disturbing. I surely see why they loved it in Berlin because it has this decadent although very creative atmosphere about it. So if you love life after hours you'll love this movie. The actors are good, although the pace is a bit slow for today's viewer. I surely see what was ground breaking at the time but 20 years later I still prefer Caroline Roboh's SHEM.
