A transporting reverie of lost love, this visionary diptych straddles contemporary Lisbon and colonial Mozambique. One of cinema’s most promising new voices, Miguel Gomes’s third feature is formally daring, heartbreaking, and funny. Shot in luminous black and white and featuring a sound design evocative of silent film, Tabu evokes cinema’s past to point to its future. Named the second best film of 2012 in Sight and Sound’s poll of over 100 critics.
