María Nieves Rego and Juan Carlos Copes brought the tango van Buenos Aires to the rest of the world, performing passionately during the second half of the 20th century in venues filled to capacity. In Ultimo Tango the most celebrated tango partners in Argentina are reunited. They share their story with a group of young tango dancers and choreographers in modern-day Buenos Aires. The dancers render the most beautiful, most touching and most dramatic moments from the turbulent lives of María and Juan into dazzling choreography.
The two met as teenagers and danced together for more than fifty years. No other woman could dance like María, and no other man like Juan! In all those years they had a love-hate relationship; often the two lovers would break up, yet after painful separations they always made up. The candid exchanges in interviews, the documentary elements in the film and the appealing camera work treat viewers to an unforgettable trip into the very heart of tango.
