Movie“The Christmas Tango” (Το Τανγκό των Χριστουγέννων)

Sunday, March12, 3 PM, Talbot Auditorium, Luther Bonney Hall, USM Portland campus.

This movie is rescheduled from last year (due to weather)
An unexpected meeting between the sixty-five-year-old Lazaros Lazarou and a young man, on Christmas Day, brings back hidden memories from 1970 at the time of the Greek junta. Then, in an isolated army camp in Evros, the lieutenant (Yannis Stankoglou) commands the soldier (Antinoos Albanis) to teach him the tango in secret. At a Christmas celebration that winter, the sensual dance becomes the focus for the intersection of four lives: an introverted soldier; a harsh lieutenant; a strict and very conservative colonel (Giannis Bezos); and Zoi Loggou (Vicky Papadopoulou), the colonel’s wife, who is suffocating in her restricted life. Through the dance the lieutenant hopes to get close to Zoi and reveal his love for her. In Greek with English sub-titles. 102 minutes.
