Tabu – a story of the south seas (1931)

Managing to be both heartwarmingly cute and hauntingly cruel at the same time, this beautifully conceived and executed fairytale of love, rebellion and societal demands is vibrant with life and emotion. Unfortunately, it also contains quite a bit of the mannerisms common to silent moviemaking, making it harder to comprehend or appreciate today.

Maybe in my book.
