Tabu: The Soul Is a Stranger on Earth

Tabu - Es ist die Seele ein Fremdes auf Erden

Directed by Christoph Stark
Austria, Germany, 2011


Two solitary children go from clinging to each other for companionship to becoming soul mates, then lovers; no one can tear them asunder, not even they themselves. Georg and Margarete Trakl, protagonists of perhaps the greatest never-before-told forbidden love story in history.
