~Tango Durch Deutschland (Mommartz, Lutz) [161477] aka: Tango through Germany An ironic look at the difference between a film image and reality, this drama by Lutz Mommartz features American actor Eddie Constantine as himself. During the 1950s, Constantine starred in several film noir adventures as the nefarious Lemmy Caution. In this story, he walks out of a kind of film museum where he has been enshrined as the typecast character he played so well. Out on the streets, Constantine runs into his screen image as a tough guy over and over again. Men give him a rough time thinking he is Lemmy Caution; no one distinguishes the actor behind the screen persona. Finally he meets a woman (Maya Farber-Jansen) who seems willing to accept him on his own terms.
