Our films this week deal with passion that is forbidden by law or custom. This week’s review film, Call Me By Your Name, deals with an affair between two men. So does our companion film, Maurice. Tanna and Tabu revolve around an opposite-sex affair that flouts local customs, as does Romeo And Juliet. The lovers risk serious consequences because denying their feelings is unthinkable. It makes extraordinarily compelling cinema.
