A film by German Kral, “Our Last Tango” is a story of love between the two most famous dancers in tango’s history. And the story of their tremendous love of tango.
María Nieves and Juan Carlos Copes are the best-known couple in the history of tango and have shaped the dance like no other. They danced together passionately, loved and hated each other for almost 50 years, until one day they separated. And that left a huge gap in the tango scene… Now, almost at the end of their lives, they talk about their story for the first time..
María Nieves Rego (81) and Juan Carlos Copes (84) met when they were 14 and 17, and they danced together for nearly fifty years. In all those years they loved and hated each other and went through several painful separations, but always got back together.
Now, Juan and María are willing to open up about their love, their hatred, and their passion.
In Our Last Tango Juan and María tell their story to a group of young tango dancers and choreographers from Buenos Aires, who transform the most beautiful, moving and dramatic moments of Juan and Maria’s lives into incredible tango-choreographies.
These beautifully-shot choreographies compliment the soul-searching interviews and documentary moments of the film to make this an unforgettable journey into the heart of the tango.
