Our Last Tango

Our Last Tango tells the life and love story of Argentina’s most famous tango dancers Maria Nieves Rego (80) and Juan Carlos Copes (83), who met as teenagers and danced together for nearly fifty years until a painful separation tore them apart.

Relaying their story to a group of young tango dancers and choreographers from Buenos Aires, their story of love, hatred and passion is transformed into unforgettable tango-choreographies.

*Before the 7:30 PM screening on Tuesday, May 31, immerse yourself in Argentine dance and music with The Hartford Argentine Tango Society!


"An equitable, beautifully crafted document about a pair of married but emotionally ever-changing dance partners."

Scott Marks, San Diego Reader

"Viewers will sense that the history of these compelling figures entails more frustration and complexity than can be examined in a short running time."

Abbey Bender, Village Voice

"There's something achingly poignant about watching the octogenarian Nieves and Copes direct "themselves" - while addressing what might have been."

Noel Murray, Los Angeles Times
