Part of Film series Intimate Epics
Directed by Raúl Ruiz | 2010

With João Arrais, José Afonso Pimentel, Adriano Luz

“an entrancingly strange, beautifully eccentric fable”
—The Guardian

Only the ingenious Chilean director Raúl Ruiz—a man known for his successful adaptation of Proust, Le Temps retrouvé—could transform this expansive, dreamlike web of stories into a striking work of cinema. Mysteries of Lisbon is adapted from Portuguese author Camilo Castelo Branco’s three-volume Gothic novel about an orphan seeking to uncover the truth of his family, which takes place across three decades, including the Peninsular War, and features more than a hundred characters. Surreal and bewitching, Ruiz’s sinuous drama guides audiences through a labyrinth of histories, memories, and betrayals.
