Critic Reviews for Tango
A most uninteresting and unsatisfying story pads the film between dance scenes.
Saura aims for the Fellini masterpiece, but lacks both Fellini's playfulness and easy fusion of fantasy and reality.
You'll want to learn to tango after seeing this sumptuous movie.
...a movie that will appeal more to those with particular knowledge of -- and enthusiasm for -- the quintessential Argentine dance.
A sense-luscious film that conveys the passion, the exotic footwork and the sexual undertow of the tango.
Allows the tango, in its myriad expressive forms, to take center stage, telling the story and igniting the senses with its sinuous, elegant moves.
