From time to time cinema’s limelight shines on Tango, the latest offering presented this week at the Venice Film Festival. “Tango Libre”, from what I could gleam, an intriguing scene setter of a woman and her son on the outside with two men (a lover/husband and an ex) on the inside. With the two men being best friends the stage is set as what seems like a domesticated ménage à trois. With two thirds of the relationship in prison, she discovers Tango and as the cliché goes, her life changes, but it does so in with an almost farcical twist and we go on to explore this journey and it’s fall out.
The first clip is news piece on the film and it’s two stars and the second (in French) reveals a little more about the film including the worlds coolest Tango dancing inmate, you think it could only be one person, and it is. From what I saw, it’s a film which doesn’t wax lyrical about the dance, but weaves Tango as part of its fabric, a refreshing change in the style of “Not Here to Be Loved“. The release date is slated for 7th November 2012, though nothing on the googlevine when it’s coming to screens in the UK yet.
