This epic retelling of the novel by Camilo Castelo Branco has been widely hailed as the summation of Ruiz' career.

Mysteries of Lisbon plunges us into a veritable whirlwind of adventures and escapades, coincidences and revelations, sentiments and violent passions, vengeance, love affairs, all wrapped in a rhapsodic voyage that takes us from Portugal to France, Italy, and as far as Brazil. In this Lisbon of intrigue and hidden identities, we encounter a series of characters all somewhat linked to the destiny of Pedro da Silva, orphan in a boarding school. Father Dinis, a descendent of the aristocratic libertines, later becomes a hero who defends justice, a countess maddened by her jealousy and set on her vengeance, a prosperous businessman who had mysteriously made his fortune as a bloodthirsty pirate; these and many more all cross in a story set in the 19th century and all searching for the true identity of our main character.

    Miele narra la storia di Irene, una ragazza di trent'anni che ha deciso di aiutare le persone che soffrono: malati terminali che vogliono abbreviare l'agonia, persone le cui sofferenze intaccano la dignità di essere umano. Un giorno a richiedere il suo servizio è un settantenne in buona salute, che ritiene semplicemente di aver vissuto abbastanza. L'incontro metterà in discussione le convinzioni di Irene e la coinvolgerà in un dialogo serrato lungo il quale la relazione tra i due sembrerà infittirsi di sottintesi e ambiguità affettive.

    Er ist exzentrisch, genial, scharfzüngig – doch nicht unbesiegbar. Das muss Tony Stark alias Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) erkennen, als er sich einem Gegner gegenübersieht, der keine Grenzen kennt. Nachdem dieser ihm all das, was Stark am Herzen liegt, genommen hat, begibt sich der geschlagene Held auf die leidvolle Suche den zu finden, der dafür verantwortlich ist – eine Reise, die seinen Mut und seine Standhaftigkeit auf eine harte Probe stellen wird. Mit dem Rücken zur Wand kann sich Stark auf seiner Mission nur noch auf seine eigenen Instrumente, seinen Scharfsinn und seine Instinkte verlassen um jene zu schützen, die ihm am wichtigsten sind. Während er sich langsam wieder zu alter Form zurückkämpft, findet Stark die Antwort auf die Frage, die ihn insgeheim schon lange verfolgt: Macht der Mann den Anzug oder macht der Anzug den Mann?
