Chancing to meet young Frenchwoman Jeanne (Maria Schneider), Paul enters into a sadomasochistic, carnal relationship with her, indirectly attacking the hypocrisy all around him through his raw, outrageous sexual behavior. Paul also hopes to purge himself of his own feelings of guilt, brilliantly (and profanely) articulated in a largely ad-libbed monologue at his wife's coffin. If the sexual content in Last Tango is uncomfortably explicit (once seen, the infamous "butter scene" is never forgotten), the combination of Brando's acting, Bertolucci's direction, Vittorio Storaro's cinematography, and Gato Barbieri's music is unbeatable, creating one of the classic European art movies of the 1970s, albeit one that is not for all viewers.

I had heard so much about this movie, and I finally decided to get it. I've been following what Rob Pattenson has been reading and listening to and watching, so I decided to get the movie and see what it was such a rave about. I'm a Marlon Brando fan and I put the film in and watched. At first I was confused as to wahat was going on. It opened with him looking disheveled and walking aimlessly, while a cute young woman walks by hurriedly. Thy end up at the same apartment and things progress from there. Now I'm not sure if it was planned, or coincidental. By film's end, I could understand his pain, why his wife killed herself is still unclear. I wanted them to be together in the end, but the woman was engaged, so she ended the affair. All in all I'd say this was a good film, and I recommend it!
