Last Tango in Hearts

Last Tango in Hearts

Vincente Rossi, Carlos Vega and Carlos Muzzio Pena; each a dilligent historian have all investigated the origins of tango. There is also a history of tango that the cinema periodically divulges; according to this sentimental version the tango was born in the riverbank tenements of Buenos Aires. The upper class rejected it at first but around 1910, indoctrinated by the good example of Paris, finally threw open theirs doors to that product of the slums. What was once a devilish orgy is now a way of walking.

The sexual nature of tango has often been noted, but not so its violence. Certainly both are modes of the same impulse. The word for man connotes both sexual potency and combative potential and the word virtus, Latin for courage comes from the vir; meaning male. Tango or sex in a vertical position, as a perfect combination is also the same thing done in different ways. And once a upon a time it's done by a perfect man.
Well certainly it takes two to tango but one man is enough to break a vixen's heart.

None one but Vincent D'Onofrio

  21. glad you liked it.
    i just wish there were more photos like those on the internet. not only from naked tango but from all of his films.

  22. Stunning photos, love the clarity and emotion evoked through the use of black & white photography. The picture of Vincent behind the camera is spectacular a rare view of Vincent on the other end of the camera's lens. I wonder what ever happened to the actress in the film? I have never seen her perform in any other films.
