“Young Portuguese director Miguel Gomes plunges us into two narratives that are nothing less than pure poetry.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe screenplay and refined narration, the delicate but still frenetic soundtrack that dances through Joana Sáu0026#39;s piano keyboards, the contrasting photography (not new, not old), as well as the roaming melancholy of Lisbon and Africau0026#39;s landscapes, drive us to a distant, dream-like, almost abstracted dimension.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eu0026quot;Tabuu0026quot; is truly a cinematic synesthesia, an artistic portrait that, inexplicably, grabs its viewers from the first minute. A genuine pearl that will endure in our thoughts for quite some time. A triumph.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003e8/10”
