Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Ricardo Reis, a doctor, has returned to his native Portugal. He is a man in touch with every facet of life at a time in history when certainty in society is about to be scattered to the winds. Translated from Portuguese.

Synopsis:

Lisbon. 1936. Ricardo Reis is a doctor, returning to his native Portugal from Brazil after 16 years away. But what kind of doctor is he? His companions include: the ghost of the poet Pessoa; a girl with a paralysed hand; and the hotel chambermaid, who slips into his bed at night.

Synopsis:

Take a journey through the streets of Lisbon during the 1930's-travel through its streets, parks, bridges, and cafes. Love, politics, and the realities of life all mesh together in this encounter.
