Filmed entirely in Tahiti, Tabu represented an unusual collaboration between legendary directors F. W. Murnau and Robert Flaherty (Nanook of the North). Two lovers are doomed by a tribal edict decreeing that the girl is "taboo" to all men. While the lovers' flight from judgement and the ultimate power of the tabu are reminiscent of Murnau's expressionist films, Tabu is all open air and sunlight -- the brilliant tropical light sparkles on the ocean and glistens on the beautiful young bodies of the native men and women.
