Mango tango is an early embodiment of the #MeToo theme. The film illustrates the trials and travails of a young woman, who is looking for a loving relationship, but instead experiences abuse by men in positions of power, whose professional help she has been seeking out in the first place. Leading up to the climax of the film is an off- balance tango between perpetrator and victim, showing that only two people who respect each other are able to dance in unison. The protagonist, ironically a tango teacher, who teaches her students balance and respect , has an intuition early on in form of vivid dreams.. But it will take some hard knocks for her to realize what’s really going on.
