Mango tango is an early embodiment of the #MeToo theme. The film illustrates the trials and travails of a young woman, who is looking for a loving relationship, but instead experiences abuse by men in positions of power, whose professional help she has been seeking out in the first place. Leading up to the climax of the film is an off- balance tango between perpetrator and victim, showing that only two people who respect each other are able to dance in unison. The protagonist, ironically a tango teacher, who teaches her students balance and respect , has an intuition early on in form of vivid dreams.. But it will take some hard knocks for her to realize what's really going on.

Stunning debut by this director-actress !! I loved it !!
I am very impressed with this 1st effort by this extremely talented and stunningly beautiful director-writer-actress-dancer-singer-pianist !! I was blown away by the originality of the writing, the quirckiness of the humor and the character development, the bravery of the actors, the quality and integration of the music, the authentic and honest choreography, and the cleanliness and simplicity of the cinematography.
I laughed , and sighed, and felt my heart open to the sadness and frustration and joy and exhiliration of this woman's life situation around men.
And her efforts to process and grow through these experiences was a pleasure and honor to watch. The willingness of this lead actress to "expose" all parts of herself to us all is commendable.!
The integration of fantasy and reality , I believe , served us as an audience, in keeping us involved in the lead character's inner thoughts and some of her logic for the choices she made . I look forward to seeing the sophomore project by this director..
