Production Notes:

  • THE TANGO LESSON was shot on location in Paris, London, and Buenos Ares.
  • THE TANGO LESSON is based on an actual encounter between Pablo Veron and Sally Potter, but how true to life their love story is Potter won't say.
  • Sally Potter is an accomplished dancer who began studying dance at the late age of 21, and went on to make several documentaries about dance.
  • She once said that, in making the film, "At times I felt like a spy. spying on my own life in order to use the material in order to tell a tale."
  • Director Potter provided the vocals on the score, which she co-wrote.
  • In the film, when Sally asks Pablo why he chose the tango he replies, "I didn't chose the tango, the tango chose me."
