Item Description
A woman desperate to change her life takes a wrong turn
into danger and degradation in this drama. In 1924, Stephanie
(Mathilda May) is travelling to Buenos Aires with her husband, who
is considerably older than her and in poor health. Stephanie is not
happy with her life, so when a young woman named Alba falls
overboard and drowns, Stephanie assumes her identity once the ship
arrives in Argentina. Stephanie realizes that this was a terrible
mistake when she learns that Alba was the mail-order bride of Zico
(Esai Morales), a notorious pimp and mobster who puts her to work
in a brothel that he operates with his family. A terrified
Stephanie kills her first customer and is soon on the run from the
police; she finds that she must return to Zico's criminal family
for protection, where she is placed at the mercy of Cholo (Vincent
D'Onofrio), the sensuous-but-brutal "King of the Tango." Naked
Tango reunited Leonard Schrader, Manuel Puig, and David Weisman,
who had worked together as screenwriter, book author, and producer
on the international hit Kiss of the Spider Woman.
