  1. afuchs's rating of the film Tabu

    I love Miguel Gomes and his devious ways. What kind of story is this? Who dreamt it up? Why did the main actress have to be beautiful? To such an extent? And what's with the speechless scenes that are not mute? Mariana Ricardo's cameo!

    Le Paradis & le Paradis Perdu, film étrange, inclassable, tragique & beau. Je dis souvent que quelque chose qui commence mal ne peut pas se terminer bien, en voici une édifiante illustration. Culte. Sans concession. Inoubliable. === Paradise & Paradise Lost, strange, tragic & beautiful film. I often say something that starts badly cannot end well, here's an uplifting illustration. Uncompromising. Unforgettable. Rare.

  7. Superfrog's rating of the film Tabu

    Stunning soundtrack, captivating story, good photography. Tells a story of colonisation, the people involved, the end thereof and the silence thereabout. The first part is a pretty good gem about modern times, and the second explains how it came about.

    Un film superbe qui se regarde comme on lit un roman . Prise de son exceptionnelle , format, et le noir et blanc font de tout cela un petit Chef d'oeuvre

  10. kinotopia's rating of the film Tabu

    wow this really romanticizes white supremacy and ripping off "Jules and Jim".

  11. BUTTAUD's rating of the film Tabu

    Magnifique! Une image splendide et un traitement narratif très intéressant, mêlant distance, douceur, nostalgie et passion.

  13. FISCHER's rating of the film Tabu

    D'une apparente construction classique, jouxtant présent et passé, la dramaturgie fantomatique mise en place par Gomes, en apesanteur et gravité, s'amplifie et s'enrichit en fait sans cesse, de constantes références souvent implicites, sans véritables liens flagrants ou manifestes, comme déjà dans ce magnifique prologue suicidaire et carnassier qui résume à lui seul les incessants ravages du cœur www.cinefiches.com

  14. filmotrope's rating of the film Tabu

    With a gorgeous black-and-white cinematography and an impressive thematic rigor, this is a welcome surprise of tremendous poetry, a film that confronts frustration and memory as a lyrical homage to silent movies accompanied by a haunting narration. http://www.filmotrope.com

    Je vois le génie, mais je ne suis pas en mesure de l'apprécier. Ma faute!

  16. EdieEmm's rating of the film Tabu

    Was colonialism: A moment of untamed and passionate youth? The growing pains of an evolving moral consciousness? Simply evocative cinematic backdrop? If no, (hint: the answer is no) then we're left with some problematic filmmaking. Very glad this wasn't my first Gomes. Not that it didn't have charm, display talent, develop his style... It did. While being about as ill-advised and aversive as its characters. 2.75.

  19. fearraigh's rating of the film Tabu

    The most accomplished of Gomes' films. A wonderfully eery tale of betrayal and loss from the mists of Portugal's lost Empire.

  20. goulton green's rating of the film Tabu

    Kaleidoscope movie. Beautiful, made of stories in many different scales. I love particularly those tiny one given in a frame or two, and those untold in full like the one about Pilar. Is the crocodile an epitome of colonial Portugal, the Tabu to talk about in the post colonial Portugal, and the crime of lovers, a self inflicted injury colonial times have done to present days? Now a fading injury.

  22. Silvoieski's rating of the film Tabu

    Cinema português ao rubro!Tabu é um filme que fica na memória por todo a construção delinear e estética que apresenta. Uma obra que se pode vangloriar como altamente completa:desde do experimentalismo filosófico, passando pelo humor negro de uma preta, de uma solteirona e de uma demente,até ao clássico melodrama português refinado por uma homenagem ao cinema mudo. Este filme é realmente uma ode à essência portuguesa.
