Gorgeous, intriguing melodrama set in 19th-century Portugal. Based on a novel famous for its complex plot, Mysteries of Lisbon follows a jealous countess, a wealthy businessman and a young orphaned boy across Portugal, France, Italy and Brazil, as their lives intertwine. Raúl Ruiz’s late masterpiece.

Entrancingly strange, beautifully eccentric.”  (Peter Bradshaw – The Guardian)
