Mysteries of Lisbon, DVD


Portuguese filmmaker Raoul Ruiz directs this epic historical drama based on the book by 19th century romantic novelist Camilo Castelo Branco.

The film weaves a labyrinth of interconnected stories around the history and identity of orphan Pedro da Silva (Joao Arrais) and Padre Dinis (Adriano Luz), the priest who becomes his protector.

When Pedro is visited during a feverish sleep by a woman claiming to be his mother (Maria Joao Bastos), a multi-layered journey into his past and the lives and loves of his predecessors begins to unfold layer by layer.
