FILM |Mysteries of Lisbon – January

This Portuguese-language film was the swansong of the great Chilean director Raúl Ruiz, who died last year. Based on a story by the Portuguese writer Camilo Castelo Branco, it is an enigmatic four-hour work that takes audiences on a dreamy journey to Portugal, France and Italy. In an ironic twist the anti-hero, a shady businessman, pretends to be Brazilian – and has a parrot to prove it.

The last film by the great Chilean filmmaker Raúl Ruiz (Genealogies of a Crime, Time Regained) is also regarded as one of his best. This majestically paced film, which takes place in the 19th century, details the travails of a jealous countess, a wealthy businessman and a young boy as they travel through Portugal, France, Italy and Brazil, encountering a series of often mysterious characters. An enigmatic swansong from one of cinema’s most lyrical filmmakers.

Please note there will be a ten minute interval half way through the film.
