@04:30Wonderful and passionate, and in such a way that it made me feel very good :) And I read in one of your comments that it was completely improvised by the actors? That is absolutely amazing, since it seemed so perfectly choreographed! And incidentally, it was beautifully edited as well ;)

Thanks! The movie isn't completely improvised. Here how it works: the day before filming, we went on-location with my script and tried different scenes. The actors interpreted the script and improvised a dance. I then selected what was interesting for me and we recorded everything the day after. The dance still remained partly improvised.

This was of working (collaborating with actors, rather than rigidly directing them) might not be common-place in cinema but is quite common now in theatre (we are all involved in some way in theatre)

Aha! Well that is a bit more realistic, I suppose :) However, it is still very wonderful to see collaboration like that produce something so amazing :) There is a place for rigidly-directed acting, to be sure, but it is very refreshing to see something so open and free :)

@04:30Great work, as usual. Very sensual, it has passion, emotion, very strong non-verbal language. Makes you think. Makes you wanna listen to tango. To hum, or even dance, even if you cannot tango. Executed flawlessly. Congrats!

@04:30Very sexy! You've got to love the push and pull of tango! It really gives the perfect tension when it comes to passion!

@04:30I read one of your comments had mentioned the actors improvised! Very impressive! I like the touch of humor. The twist at the end where she takes control, it seemed that way to me, was a good surprise. Beautifully filmed and executed.

On had a rehearsal one day before filming where they improvised and I noted the choreography that I liked. When filming, they reproduced it and also improvised some parts as well.

"The Tango Murder(er)" soon in chosen cinemas!

and still you can surprise me with something really new. i really love the tango and i think i saw some real tango moves, don't i?
perhaps the effect of slowing down and fastening the movements would work better if the slowest tempo is slightly slowmotion instead of realtime. the only thing i can tell what bothered me a little bit.
great work, a true monzani indeed. ;)

Oh, that's great to read! They are actually actors, not dancers, so they gave their own interpretation of tango.
