In Buenos Aires in the 1940s, she was the most beautiful girl in the neighbourhood. He could not dance at all. But they had a dream. Together they changed the history of tango. Love. Jealousy. Hate. They were the most celebrated tango couple of all time.

The feature documentary film, directed by German Kral and executive produced by Wim Wenders (Pina, Buena Vista Social Club), tells the story of María Nieves Rego and Juan Carlos Copes, the two most famous dancers in tango’s history.

María Nieves Rego (80) and Juan Carlos Copes (83) met as teenagers and danced together for nearly fifty years. Now, Juan and María are willing to open up about their love, their hatred, and their passion. Our Last Tango bridges the gap between generations, as Juan and Maria tell their story to a group of young tango dancers and choreographers from Buenos Aires, who transform the most beautiful, moving and dramatic moments of Juan and Maria’s lives into incredible tango-choreographies.

These beautifully shot choreographies compliment the soul-searching interviews and documentary moments of the film to make this an unforgettable journey into the heart of the tango.
