ULTIMO TANGO A PARIGI – Last Tango in Paris

Paul (Marlon Brando), an American living in Paris, is devastated after his wife’s suicide. Looking for a place that doesn’t remind him of her, he meets the young French woman Jeanne (Maria Schneider). The two are attracted to each other sexually straight away. Involving himself in this purely physical relationship, Paul tries to get in control of his desperation. When Paul tries to build a stronger connection to Jeanne, they are heading towards a catastrophe.
