LAST TANGO IN PARIS

Marlon Brando, Maria Schneider, Jean-Pierre Leaud

United Artists; Directed by Bernardo Bertolucci

Rated R; 129 minutes; 1972

Controversial at the time of its release for its frank, and often brutal depiction of sexuality, LAST TANGO IN PARIS is considered a contemporary masterpiece. As Paul, an American living in Paris, Marlon Brando delivers a brilliant portrayal of a man coming to grips with the primal nature of human relationships.
