Watch Tabu - Alternative Versions.
A safari hunter drifts across the starched heat of the African plains,
stealthily prowling amongst the tall grass, the scorching shimmering
sunlight falls upon the shadows of predatorial lions, hungry hippos and
the gleaming jaws of the crocodile. A vinyl recording of 60s rock 'n'
roll echoing over time through generations suggest a nostalgic
remembrance of a distant land, which later plays a greater significance
in a saga of unrequited love, regret and (literally) life and death.
Initially, Tabu is a love story in disguise, a unfinished love story
sprawling over a lifetime of passion, regret, duty and propriety. In
it's latter stages it contemplates ideas of memory, unrequited love,
ageing, class inequality, prejudice, and European colonialism in
African hills and plains.
The first part follows the life of an enigmatic elderly woman in
contemporary Portugal - titled Paradise Lost - as she goes about her
daily life, we learn snippets about her about her prosaic hobbies,
simple pleasures, prejudices, idiosyncrasies, detests, and regrets over
a sobering simple lifestyle, a long way from the dream life she
idolised. Her simple pleasures have allowed her to gamble away her
savings and her estranged family by doing so; in her current state, she
had little left except her dedicated maid and carer Pilar who initially
acts as the audience's eyes and ears into the portrait of a solitary
What is the intriguing background to this lady's prime of beauty and
youth? The modern landscape of metropolitan Lisbon, Portugal is
industrial, bleak and sobering, at times sad and efficient, a far world
from that which she inhabited in her youth. It is not long until what
find out the origins of her melancholy and frustration, and what
exactly has been trying to atone for most of her later life.
So begins a tale in colonial Africa, a tale of love and betrayal, rock
'n' roll, diamonds, and an alligator. This second part, subtitled
Paradise is almost silent with only diegetic sound imposed during key
moments with no title cards as far as I can remember. It is a
wonderfully romantic and nostalgic yet with an undercurrent on living
the edge of a precipice - the dangerous beasts of the African plains,
the wild unfamiliar natives and rugged landscape - there exists a sense
of tragedy combined with high passion, regret and wild party impulses.
Whereas part one is melancholic as it is bitter and comic, the second
part contrasts the beauty of youth, the blinding African heat and sun,
it exposes the storytelling medium the by abandoning almost all
dialogue and all but some diegetic sound effects. The compositions and
framing are gorgeous, a simple story of unrequited love requiring
little explanation and is suggested by moods, looks, and atmosphere and
nostalgic memories. The economy in telling a story almost wordlessly,
embraces the feelings and mood of silent storytelling placing the onus
of eliciting emotion on the charismatic and effortless performances.
From the frustrating, fussy and capricious Aurora to the charismatic,
carefree, jeunesse Ventura and the supporting jaunty characters, each
signify the contrasts in class, social status and the colonial class
system soon to collapse under political revolution.
What is essentially an unrequited love story /melodrama is a
charismatic and rollicking passionate ride with some crystal sharp
compositions in textured black and white. This is an impressive,
technically creative, charismatic, heartbreaking, melancholic and
nostalgic film; perhaps more daring and arguably less conventional than
that other lauded silent film of last year. Tabu is gorgeously
unpredictable, surprising and artful.
