Catch ‘The Tango Lesson’ at the I-House

By From page A9 | October 02, 2013

“The Tango Lesson,” a  1997 European film directed by Sally Potter, will be screened Friday as part of the International Film Series.
The series is co-sponsored by the United Nations Association of Davis and International House. Doors at I-House, 10 College Park, open at 7:30 p.m. and the film begins promptly at 8 p.m.
There is no charge, but donations are accepted with gratitude to help cover the cost of DVD rental, facilities use and refreshments.
This drama is about a British film director named Sally (Sally Potter) and a great tango dancer named Pablo (Pablo Veron). Sally promises to put Pablo in a movie in exchange for tango lessons.

Sally is a good student — they perform together, but there is tension, among other things about who should lead. The scenes are divided into lessons; some are about dance, some about life. The back and forth between Sally and Pablo is fascinating because it is about the wisdom of passion, rather than the temptation.
