THE BLACK BOOK OF FATHER DINIS

O CADERNO NEGRO
France, Portugal | 2018 | Valeria Sarmiento

THE BLACK BOOK OF FATHER DINIS film still

An orphan and his nurse have a series of romantic adventures in late 18th-century Europe in this lush, opulent costume melodrama that director Valeria Sarmiento conceived as an appendix to 2010’s expansive Mysteries of Lisbon by her late husband Raúl Ruiz. (Both movies are based on novels by 19th-century Portuguese writer Camilo Castelo Branco, who is depicted in Manoel de Oliveira’s Francisca.) Sarmiento’s yarn strides the continent from Rome and Venice to Paris and London, pondering the intertwined nature of fate, desire, and duty while exposing conspiracies involving the clergy, the military, and the gentry. Cleveland premiere. Subtitles. 103 min.
