Film Review: Tango Fatal

Phil Hall reviews the DVD of the Argentine musical "Tango Fatal", choreographed by Carlos Copello, on filmthreat.com

If “Tango Fatal” skimps on the soundtrack (only two songs – the rest of the score is instrumental) and relies too much on stereotypes (a pair of thugs, one dressed in garish clothing and the other hobbling on a crippled leg, are called “Italian” and “Lame”), it compensates with its extraordinary dancing. Granted, the serious foot movement doesn’t kick in until 20 minutes, but when it starts it becomes a dynamic _expression of powerful body movement and wickedly choreographed eroticism. The tango is perhaps the most sexual of all dances and the dance movements could easily qualify as soft-core if the dancers hadn’t kept their clothing on.
