Mysteries of Lisbon Great movie. Its about secrets, coincidences, revenge, honor, love and family. 19th century period film set in Portugal. 4 1/2 hours, but doesn't challenge you with it. There is a ton of depth and detail as the time is needed to unravel the stories within stories within stories. Excellent cinematography and the writing too. Its also a quirky movie. Timing is off at times, camera almost never does a closeup, long tracking shots, all very well constructed and thought through. Incredibly honest movie with its dark reality. Gets better the more I think about it. See it.
