"Misterios de Lisboa" nos arrastra en un auténtico torbellino de aventuras y desventuras, de coincidencias y revelaciones, de sentimientos y pasiones violentas, de venganzas, de historias de amor para vivir un accidentado viaje a través de Portugal, Francia, Italia y también Brasil.
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.
