LAST TANGO IN PARIS “Ultimo tango a Parigi” (Bernardo Bertolucci, 1974 / Blu Ray, 128 mins, 18A) | Passionate, sexual, and entirely unforgettable, Bernardo Bertolucci’s LAST TANGO IN PARIS is an exotic, erotic masterpiece about an engaged Parisian woman (Maria Schneider) and her clandestine affair with a recently widowed, middle-aged American businessman (Marlon Brando). Upon its release in 1974, the film received worldwide attention for its unflinching sex scenes (it originally received an “X” rating and was banned in many countries) as well as its raw, naturalistic portrayal of a very adult relationship*
