Tabu

(Miguel Gomes, 2012)

Fri, Jan 18, 2013 7 PM

“A gracious love letter to cinema.” –Sight and Sound

Described by the New York Times as having “prompted something approaching a collective swoon” at the Berlin International Film Festival, the dryly absurd and deeply romantic Tabu tells the story of a mildly batty elderly woman in contemporary Lisbon, tracing her life back 50 years to an illicit love affair. The film’s title recalls F.W. Murnau and Robery Flahtery’s exquisite 1931 film of the same name, further cementing Tabu as an inventive homage to early cinema and movie love from rising Portuguese star Miguel Gomes. (118 mins, 2K DCP)
