Took awhile to catch the inference that learning what we did not know can change our opinion so thoroughly that you no longer know who you are. Photography and settings were wonderful although at times the story line seemed confusing - a story of a life lived without a happy ever after ending. Worth the watch but...the time in history has many roadblocks for women and children, the feature issues in this story.

It is a very convoluted plot, but the ambiance and strength in style make it a fascinating watch.

Mysteries of Lisbon has to rank as one of the finest film productions in the last few years. It certainly should received more recognition than it has to date. Great acting and great scenes.

This is a serial story by a well respected Spanish director. He explains that there was a time when you regularly read the local newspaper, not just for news, but for the serial stories inside. Most of our publications used to do that, and even had a poetry section. this is what inspired this director, he tells us in the bonus disc. Also that he was impressed by the early film makers of America..back when there was film noir, and story line, and well developed characters.

This story has at its epicenter a Catholic priest..who happens to be around near, in lots of scenes of the lives of those around him for decades..interesting how these lives intertwine. And how the priest is there at a good time, often...sometimes not able to stop the wrong that is happening, of course.. it also reveals to us
life during the Napoleanic wars...that in Spain beign particularly horrific. We are spared the worst of that. The focus is
on life among the aristocracy..with some intermingling of those from the underbelly..namely a murderer and former friend of the priest..who is saddened to see his former murderer become wealthy in the slave trade..and also be about as godless a human being as possible.
Lots of reasons one should have this in their collection of good film making and story telling.

It is just a bad movie. Bad in terms of everything. Plot, acting, cinema-photography; its just cheep and tasteless. My wife and gave up after watching for 20 minutes. The cinema world must be missing serious alternatives to recognize movies like this.

This brings the early 1800's alive in a way few films have even attempted. The sets, costumes, and mannerisms are very authentic compared with descriptions I have read in books. However, 6 hours is too long to stay interested in most of these characters. It could have been tighter and more compelling had it stayed with the mother (easily the most compelling person.) There are too many rich guys flexing their muscles and shouting out their passions and grudges.
