Keswick Film Festival: Our Last Tango (12A)
Keswick Film Festival returns for its 19th year with its acclaimed blend of the best films from the world’s great Festivals, thought-provoking documentaries plus some retrospectives and very special guests.
As we try to decide which of the current crop of films from around the world we should see, KFF 2018 will also chart some of the degrees of separation between today’s directors, stars and the characters they have portrayed over the years.
Our short film competition – The Ospreys – will undoubtedly entertain and amuse and maybe give us a first glimpse of tomorrow’s film makers and KFF will again be joining us here at Rheged to make best use of our huge cinema screen.
Don’t just take our word for it! This is what our audience said last year:
• “An outstanding choice of films and a very friendly atmosphere”
• “Love the festival. Been for the last three years and will return next year.”
• “Everyone really friendly, great time indulging a passion for film within a gorgeous location & plenty to explore.”
• “We very much enjoyed it and have already booked our hotel for next year.”
Our Last Tango“ is above all a love story. 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 Juan 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. No other man danced like Juan and no other woman danced like María! Eventually, he left her for good for a woman 20 years younger with whom he fathered two children.Now, at the end of their lives, 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.
