Classic Moments in Cinema: Last Tango in Paris

Year: 1973
Director: Bernardo Bertolucci

Plot: Paul - played by Marlon Brando, of Godfather fame- portrays an American expatriate living in Paris and crazed by grief after his wife commits suicide. So he roams through the Parisian streets until he meets Jeanne, an unknown girl, while apartment hunting. Without a word, they have sex. Later, while Paul arranges his wife's funeral, he decides to lease the apartment where he met Jeanne. They begin meeting there for frenzied afternoons. "No names here," he tells her. They shut out the world and forfeit their pasts and identities, temporarily forgetting grief and responsibilities.
