Tabu: A Story Of The South Seas

4

Two islanders fall in love but the girl is promised to the gods

Nosferatu director FW Murnau’s final movie, Tabu was shot far from Hollywood in Bora Bora lagoon. 

Two young islanders, Matahi and Reri, fall in love. But she’s a sacred virgin, consecrated to the gods, and the old priest can’t be escaped…

The result is pure Murnau, ravishingly beautiful, lyrical and doom-laden – even in paradise, fate has to stick its oar in.

Restored to full glory, it’s backed by extras including a weighty 56-page booklet.
