Watch: Trailer And 2 Clips For Miguel Gomes' Magical & Captivating 'Tabu'

The Playlist By Joe Cunningham | The Playlist November 30, 2012 at 10:59AM

As Miguel Gomes’ “Tabu” has worked its way around the festival circuit during the course of the year (and also during its theatrical release in a few lucky international markets) the critical acclaim it has garnered has been nothing short of stupendous. We were bowled over by it here at The Playlist when we caught it at TIFF, describing it as “charming, witty, beautifully shot and inexplicably captivating” and awarding it an A grade. Critics across the world seem to have been just as complimentary.

As Miguel Gomes’ “Tabu” has worked its way around the festival circuit during the course of the year (and also during its theatrical release in a few lucky international markets) the critical acclaim it has garnered has been nothing short of stupendous. We were bowled over by it here at The Playlist when we caught it at TIFF, describing it as “charming, witty, beautifully shot and inexplicably captivating” and awarding it an A grade. Critics across the world seem to have been just as complimentary.

Well luckily there’s going to be a chance soon to see the film domestically outside of the festivals when it opens to limited release on December 26th, and as a result we’re being treated to a new trailer. The trailer doesn’t highlight the film’s experimental structure (its split into two halves each filmed on different film stock, with the latter half essentially silent) but it can’t hide the fact that this is a black and white, subtitled effort. Still, they jazz things up with a Portuguese cover of “Be My Baby,” and it’s sure to intrigue its target art-house audience.

It can’t have been hard to find glowing quotes to stick on the trailer, but the selection here (including the quote above from our TIFF review) should suitably highlight just how in love with this film the critics are. The film stars Teresa Madruga, Laura Soveral, Ana Moreira, and if you’ve got 118 minutes spare once you’ve recovered from Christmas then we urge you to see it. Give the trailer and two clips for the movie a go and see if it wins you over. [The Film Stage]
