Posted Thu Feb 10, 2011 at 06:00 AM PST by

The 1972 Academy Award-nominated film will debut in high-definition next week.

MGM/UA has detailed 'Last Tango in Paris' coming to Blu-ray on February 15.

'Last Tango In Paris: Uncut Version' stars the legendary Marlon Brando ('On the Waterfront') as Paul, a middle-aged American who goes to Paris after his estranged wife commits suicide. During a chance meeting with the alluring Jeanne (Maria Schneider, 'Jane Eyre'), Paul enters into a sadomasochistic, carnal relationship with her, indirectly attacking the hypocrisy all around him through his raw, outrageous sexual behavior. Groundbreaking and controversial, the film was nominated for two Academy Awards®, including Best Actor (Brando) and Best Director (Bernardo Bertolucci, 'The Last Emperor'). 'Last Tango In Paris: Uncut Version' features the original explicit edition.

The Blu-ray will feature 1080p video, a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack, and there doesn't appear to be any supplements.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $19.99.
