Tabu: A Story of the South Seas Reviews

Dennis Schwartz
Ozus' World Movie Reviews

Brilliantly simple lyrical film was shot on location in Tahiti.

The Nation

Tabu is deliberate and forced in its playfulness, cheaply melodramatic in its tragedy, and unconscionably long-winded.

It is like a picture poem, with its sunshine and happiness in the beginning and its stormy drama in the end.

Combustible Celluloid

If D.W. Griffith created the language of film, he left it up to his successors to add their own personal esthetics. On the short list of the cinema's all time greatest artists belongs the name F.W. Murnau.

As with so many other great films, this one carries its own burden of real life sorrow.

The exquisite tragic ending -- conceived musically and rhythmically as a gradually decelerating diminuendo -- is one of the pinnacles of silent cinema.
