Our Last Tango documents a love story involving perhaps the most famous couple in tango history and their shared passion for the partnered dance. Now in their 80s, María Nieves Rego and Juan Carlos Copes met when they were 14 and 17 respectively, and have danced together for nearly 50 years. Off the dance floor, they loved and hated each other in equal measure, broke up and reunited, but always generated sparks as performing partners. Now toward the end of their lives, the pair share their tempestuous personal history with a group of young tango dancers and choreographers in Buenos Aires who transform the couple’s personal drama into sizzling dance numbers.

“German Kral’s documentary Our Last Tango is a combination of things, all fascinating: a portrait of María Nieves and Juan Carlos Copes, a world-renowned pair of tango dancers, and their professional partnership of almost 50 years; a stylized staging of their romantic and artistic history, performed by young dancers; and a celebration of the tango itself, which continues to bewitch with its writhing, gently jagged grace and torrid suggestiveness.” — Andy Webster, NY Times

“Never again will there be a tango couple like us.” — María Nieves Rego
