About the Film

After 'This Dear Month of August' Miguel Gomes returns with Tabu, an engaging, provocative and poetic film set both in Portugal and an un-named African location. Bearing the same title as F. W. Murnau’s classic Tabu (1931), shot in black and white and taking place at least partly in a distant land, Gomes’ third feature film is divided into 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. Both parts feature Aurora at two different stages of her life: an older Aurora regrets a past long gone while a younger Aurora dreams of a more passionate life.

song used in trailer..

anybody know what it is, who sings it ?


Amazing film, I think the song is Lonely Wine by Mickey Gilley.


Fabulous film, beautifully shot. Engaging from the start. A love story, understated, but compelling. Different and worth watching.
