Naked Tango is a 1991 film written and directed by Leonard Schrader. It starred Vincent D'Onofrio, Mathilda May, Esai Morales and Fernando Rey.
Returning by ship to Buenos Aires, a young woman escapes her elderly husband by swapping places with a woman committing suicide. She believes her new life will be that of an arranged marriage but finds it is in fact a trick to get her working in a brothel. The film plays on the supposed, if not quite true, association of tango with brothels and clearly alludes to the practices of the Zwi Migdal white-slavery and prostitition ring that was active in Buenos Aires early in the twentieth century.
