Why did Jeanne shoot Paul in Last Tango in Paris?
The movie begins when Jeanne, who is about to be married, goes apartment-hunting and finds Paul in one of the apartments. It is a big, empty apartment, with a lot of sunlight but curiously little cheer. Paul rapes her, if rape is not too strong a word to describe an act so casually accepted by the girl.
Does Last Tango in Paris have subtitles?
Many might say Last Tango in Paris has a lot of style, but for this viewer, there is no poetry, no love in a single one of its images. It uses supposedly stylish shots with as much feeling as it spouts Sadeian pornographic tropes. The DVD has a generous supply of subtitles, all sorts of different languages.
