Our Last Tango (2015, 85 min.)

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 Rego (80) and Jan Carlos Copes (83) 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. Eventually he left her for good for a woman 20 years younger with whom he fathered two children. In Our Last Tango Juan and María tell their story to a group of young tango dancers and choreographers from Buenos Aires, who transform dramatic moments of Juan and Maria’s lives into incredible tango-choreographies. These beautifully-shot choreographies compliment the interviews and documentary moments of the film to make an unforgettable journey into the heart of the tango. Written and directed by German Krai.
