Film Details

Tabu

Brazil, France, Germany, Portugal | 2012 | Miguel Gomes

Tabu

Voted the second best movie of 2012 in the Sight & Sound critics’ poll (it finished #10 in the Village Voice film poll and #11 in Film Comment’s), Miguel Gomes’ two-part b&w film borrows the title of a 1931 silent movie by F.W. Murnau (Sunrise, Nosferatu). The first part, “Paradise Lost,” takes place in modern-day Lisbon, where a middle-aged woman checks in on the elderly, slightly batty woman who lives next door. Part two, entitled “Paradise,” flashes back 50 years to the old woman’s privileged former life in colonial Africa, where she was a young bride carrying on an extramarital affair. This story of forbidden love that threatens the social order echoes Murnau’s Tabu, as does Gomes’ decision to film this chapter without dialogue. “A gloriously cinephilic fever dream…One of the year’s most rapturous love letters to the cinema.” –Toronto Int’l Film Festival.
