Starring Marlon Brando, Maria Schneider, Jean-Pierre Léaud and Catherine Breillat, Bernardo’s Bertoluccis’ Last Tango in Paris received international acclaim receiving two Academy Award nominations for Best Director and Best Actor. The film will be screened at The Miami Beach Cinematheque presented by the Centro Cultural Español as part of the Art encounters: Interstices between Literature, Cinema & Graphic Design program.
The Last Tango in Paris was one of the first films to combine cinematic art with a deep sense of controversial sexuality, considered a contemporary masterpiece for its journey into un-chartered territory on film. As Paul, an American living in Paris, Marlon Brando delivers a brilliant portrayal of a man coming to grips with the primal nature of human relationships with sexuality as the driving force, as he meets a young girl and has an intense affair without any of the typical conventions.
