Last Tango in Paris 1972
One of the most controversial films of it's time, this still gets a good deal of flack for it's explicit portrait of a tragic relationship developed by a chance meeting between two people.

Paul (Marlon Brando), distraught from his estranged wife’s recent, bloody suicide returns to France for her funeral where he meets Jeanne (Maria Schneider), a young, 20-year-old French girl in a complicated relationship with a filmmaker. The two soon take up a secret sexual relationship in a bare apartment, keeping their names from each other. Two lost souls, looking for an escape from the world and themselves. A tango of hot sex and hot emotional drama, set to the seething and sultry jazz of Gato Barbieri.

This is a classic European art house Drama – melodramatic, emotional, sensual, not always immediately apparent in its purpose, but always beautiful, and somehow perfectly capturing a real slice of life.
