This is a stunning film. It creates a palpable sense of romance and nostalgia while giving an idiosyncratic account of the effects of white colonialism. While the location of ‘Mount Tabu’ is never specified, it seems to be inspired by the Portuguese’s colonialisation of Mozambique in Southern Africa. The lush black and white cinematography is matched by the sensual soundtrack. The film really casts a cinematic spell.
