First of all, who are we kidding? The main reason either of us would watch this flick is above all because of its infamous reputation surrounded by controversy. Since I’m always interested in experimental movies, especially the ones pushing the envelop, I definitely wanted to check it out and I thought it was pretty good but it is definitely an acquired taste. Basically, it is an Art house pictu... read more

"November 14th I can tell this was a metaphor for something but I can't tell what because I'm not in Japan in the 70s. Either way, this is an important film that entertained me."

" The Ups: The guide book in how to make an art movie with unsimulated sex that critics will love. A shocking final scene and a few "bad taste" moments leaves a lasting impact. The Downs: It is pretty repetitive after a while since the entire movie is about a woman doing a man to death."

"Isäntä uittaa melaa tarjoten naisilleen ikuista nautintoa. Liiallisen kiintymyksen takia alkaa erään kanssa kuitenkin nousta pintaan mustasukkaisuutta sekä entistäkin raffimpia otteita. Taiteellista pornoa, jossa seksuaaliset himot viedään aivan ääripäähän asti."

A good movie

“First of all, who are we kidding? The main reason either of us would watch this flick is above all because of its infamous reputation surrounded by controversy. Since I’m always interested in experimental movies, especially the ones pushing the envelop, I definitely wanted to check it out and I thought it was pretty good but it is definitely an acquired taste. Basically, it is an Art house picture with some non-simulated sex-scenes and, apparently, the very first non-pornographic film to feature scenes of fellatio and even an erect penis. Knowing this fact, most people would drop the whole thing and I don’t think it is something you should watch with your fresh new girlfriend but I think that the concept was actually interesting. Indeed, why should a sex movie be ugly as hell, with som” read more

"A very explicit piece of work about a sordid love affair that becomes increasingly possessive over time. What held my interest the most was how the entire relationship presented itself in such graphic detail, as if Last Tango in Paris was a very dark psychological sex drama. Nonetheless, I probably wouldn't willingly watch it again. "
