The Tango Lesson


The Tango Lesson Review

Sally Potter (Orlando) wrote, directed, and starred (in almost every scene) in this film about how she decided to take a tango lesson, fell for the instructor, and the decided to make a movie about taking a tango lesson and falling for the instructor. Autobiographical to the point of boredom, self-referential to the point of the bizarre, and self-inflated to the point of bursting, I'll just say that you better like watching people dance the tango over and over and over again if you want to watch this film.
