Poster for Lines of Wellington

Franco-Portuguese war epic that competed for the Golden Lion at the 69th Venice Film Festival, set in the early 19th Century. By 1810 the French army had conquered Spain and was rapidly making its way across Portugal - until they reached Lisbon, defended by the Duke of Wellington and his British/Portugese forces. Against this backdrop troops rub shoulders with spies, locals and deserters as love affairs, acts of bravery and cruelty all take place. More

Planned as a follow-up to Raúl Ruiz’s Mysteries of Lisbon before his death in 2011, Lines of Wellington was completed by his widow and frequent collaborator Valeria Sarmiento.
