Last Tango in Paris1973 film which tells the story of a widowered American who is drawn into a sexual relationship with a soon-to-be-married Parisienne. It stars Marlon Brando, Maria Schneider and Jean-Pierre Léaud.
The film caused a deep scandal in Italy for a sodomy scene; the film was sequestered by censorship and officially all the copies were destroyed. An Italian court revoked Bertolucci's civil rights for five years plus it gave him a four-month suspended prison sentence. Many years after, when the general modesty had changed and the censorhip commission had been abolished, the film reappeared (because Bertolucci had kept a clandestine copy) and was projected in a slightly censored version.
