Flamboyant. Colorful. Sensual. This is the seductive world of the "Tango," stunningly brought to lifeby acclaimed director Carlos Saura (Flamenco), Grammy-winning composer Lalo Schifrin (TV's "Mission: Impossible") and Oscar(r)-winning cinematographer Vittorio Storaro (Apocalypse Now , Reds , and The Last Emperor  ). Set against the backdrop of a director's passionate love affair with his art and the beautiful young woman who captures his heart, "Tango" is "a mesmerizing experience, a smoky, lush blend of muted light and color, of intoxicating dance and the richest tango music you could ever imagine".
