Mysteries of Lisbon

 (2010)

Mysteries of Lisbon Blu-ray delivers stunning video and great audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

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.

For more about Mysteries of Lisbon and the Mysteries of Lisbon Blu-ray release, see Mysteries of Lisbon Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

Starring: Adriano Luz, Maria João Bastos, Ricardo Pereira, Clotilde Hesme

Mysteries of Lisbon Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Mysteries of Lisbon is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Music Box Films with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.95:1. This feature was shot digitally and obviously has undergone some fairly radical color timing, in fact desaturization, in post. As such, a lot of the time, the palette is intentionally subdued, creating a beautiful chiaroscuro look which verges on the monochromatic at times. The image here is sharp, although Ruiz loves to shoot in mist and fog or through veils, giving the film an ethereal, gauzy quality that may be mistaken for softness. There are a couple of artifacting issues present in this transfer, probably the most noticeable of which is persistent crush. So much of this film plays out in shadows, as if Ruiz were giving us a visual analog of a dream state, that shadow detail is more important than usual, and it suffers somewhat here, no doubt due to the post color timing, which has drained some of the gray scale out of the image. There is also transitory banding in some of the misty shots. Otherwise, though, this is a spectacular looking transfer within the intentional confines of what Ruiz and his DP André Szankowski were attempting to achieve.


Mysteries of Lisbon Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Mysteries of Lisbon's original Portuguese language track is offered here in both lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 and DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 formats. Truth be told, there isn't a whale of a lot of difference between these tracks, for the bulk of this film is really spent in quiet— some would almost argue hushed—dialogue scenes with little chance for boisterous immersion. The 5.1 track does occasionally provide the discrete ambient environmental effect, but this is a resolutely front and center anchored soundtrack. The one exception is Jorge Arriagada's haunting score, which is in fact significantly opened up in the 5.1 track. All of this said, both tracks feature sterling fidelity, with dialogue well and cleanly presented, and dialogue, effects and music extremely well prioritized. There are some very minor, yet quite effective, bursts of LFE on the soundtrack courtesy of such effects as gunshots.
