TABU

TABU

FILM CURRENTLY UNAVAILABLE
RETURN
A Portuguese woman reflects on her life in this beautiful monochrome tale of Europe's colonial past. Bearing the same title as F. W. Murnau's classic 'Tabu' (1931), Miguel Gomes' ('Our Beloved Month of August', 'Arabian Nights') third feature is divided in two distinctive yet complementary story lines. Whilst the first part, shot in 35mm and in the present time, portrays a society wallowing in nostalgia, the second part, shot in 16mm, goes back in time and plays with history, sound, the concept of linear narration, as well as the ideas of melodrama, slapstick, passion and tragedy. ★★★★★ "A delirious celebration of story and the cinematic imagination" - Jonathan Romney, The Independent ★★★★★ "The absolute quintessence of movie romance" - Tim Robey, The Telegraph ★★★★★ "A new master is born" - David Jenkins, Little White Lies
