Miguel Gomes│Portugal/Germany│2012│HD│B+W│113 mins│M

"Inspired by the director’s own life, and influenced by F.W. Murnau, TABU is a tale of paradise lost and found. After the elderly woman next door dies, Pilar encounters an old lover of her neighbour’s and learns of an episode from her past: a tale of love and crime set in Africa…[In this heady and inimitably Portuguese romance] Gomes playfully interprets and rearranges historical events. While the contemporary sections reveal a society wallowing in nostalgia, the virtually silent evocations of the past deliver everything that the lovers long for, infusing melodrama and slapstick with intense passion.
