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.
