Last Tango In Paris, (AFP) – Italian director Bernardo Bertolucci said Thursday he wanted, he would have apologized to the end of the Maria Schneider put it through the graphic sex scenes in her classic 1972 film “Last Tango in Paris “. “Her death came too soon, before I could give her a tender hug and tell her I was so attached to her as I was at the beginning and apologize to her at least once”, Bertolucci was quoted by news agency ANSA as saying.
“The strong and creative relationship that we had during the filming of” The Last Tango ‘has become poisoned with the passage of time, “he said.
“Maria has accused me of having robbed her of her youth and today I just wondered if there were not some truth to that, he added.
Schneider, who died on Thursday aged 58 after a long illness, was barely 19 when she made the controversial film that catapulted her to worldwide fame.
In interviews later, she said she had been traumatized by the insistence that Bertolucci film a particularly graphic sex scene withanl Brando.
She battled drug addiction in the 1970s but later revived her career.
“The truth is that she was too young to withstand the impact of sudden and unexpected success of the film. Marlon hid behind his impenetrable privacy and the promotion of weight fell on Maria and myself,” says Bertolucci.
“Together with the film, it gave a boost American Puritanism. At this time the transgression was still possible and Maria could not resist the temptation to live fully, body and soul, with all its beauty and joy, “he added.
