The Tango Lesson
the sally potter collection
THE TANGO LESSON is about a female filmmaker who discovers and falls in-love with the tango. In between bouts of writing a screenplay for Hollywood with which she finds herself increasingly dissatisfied she places herself under the tutelage of Pablo, an Argentinean tango dancer living in Paris. As the lessons proceed, they strike a bargain: if he will make her a tango dancer, she will make him a movie star.
