Cinema Mondays series presents the French film “Mysteries of Lisbon” (part I), directed by Raúl Ruiz, on September 21st at 15:00, 19:00 and 21:30 in the UdeC Theater. Due to its length, the movie will be screened in two parts.
A Lisbon filled with intrigue and concealed identities is inhabited by an assortment of characters somehow linked to the fates of Pedro da Silva –an orphan interned in a boarding school–, Father Dinis –a descendent of licentious aristocrats turned into a champion of justice–; a countess consumed by jealousy and the thirst of revenge; a bloodthirsty pirate turned into a thriving businessman. These and many other characters drift around 19th century history and accompany the protagonist in the quest for his true identity.
