In Search of Lost Paradise,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tabu: A Story of the South Seas (Masters of Cinema) [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
TABU is for me a Chef d’œuvre of silent movies, an ethnographical testimony on the life of the inhabitants of the Polynesians islands (Tahiti) and an evocation of the paradise such as a Westerner could dream about it in the begining of the last century.
Of a high quality of images, the movie is completed by a interesting documentary presenting outtakes from the original shoot of the film , and a short realized from sequences not edited by F. W. Murnau.
A "clin d’œil" in the magic of the images of the director and his main chief cameraman who shows that the dream works always today.
Thanks M. Murnau
