Mysteries of Lisbon (Misterios de Lisboa) Movie Reviews
User reviews on Mysteries of Lisbon (Misterios de Lisboa)
This film is nothing like any other film that I have ever seen, it was magical. I wish I have read the book before seeing this film, unfortunately I do not know Portuguese. The film is extremely long but it is never boring, I swear. I love period films and I get lost in the costumes, hairdos and customs, it is fascinating to me and i could not get enough of this film. I will not tell you much about the story because you have to see it for yourself, it is one of those films that every individual will experience differently and will have a different opinion about it.
This is an adaptation of nineteenth-century Portuguese novel that is directed by Raoul Ruizand stars Adriano Luz, Maria João Bastos and Ricardo Pereira. I really liked this film and I only realized that after I could not stop thinking about this film for 2 days, it got a hold on me. The film is enchanting in it’s own way and it is very interesting and intriguing. The film has couple of twists that are questionable and while you are watching the film, it is angering but after the movie I though about it again and it made a lot of sense. Overall, this is a great film and I highly recommend seeing it in the theaters.
