It is 1992 and Marcel Proust is on his death-bed, looking through photos, remembering his life. But the real characters mingle with the fictional ones. And gradually, fiction wins out over reality. His life's only sense lies in the reality of his work, and his work streams before his eyes. His literary characters people his memories like a stereoscope projection on the wall of his room, coming to life in the self-contained world of his small apartment on the Rue Hamelin. The happy days and lost paradises of his childhood alternate with the more recent memories of his social and literary life. The drama of the war, closely examined from the viewpoint of the small circles of Paris society, is transformed into a vast social comedy. In the spreading twilight the shape of post-war society hovers on the horizon

"On the verge of a forced retirement, Don Celso, an elderly office worker begins to relive both real and imagined memories from his life--a trip to the movies as a young boy with Beethoven, listening to tall tales from Long John Silver, a brief stay in a haunted hotel. Stories hide within stories and the thin line between imagination and reality steadily erodes, opening up a marvelous new world of personal remembrance and fantastic melodrama"--Container

Reúne, por primera vez, las tres poéticas del cine de Raúl Ruiz. Las primeras dos, que escribió en francés, han sido traducidas especial y espléndidamente para esta edición por Alan Pauls; la tercera, en tanto, ha sido armada a partir de los esbozos, textos sueltos y apuntes que Ruiz dejó escritos principalmente en castellano, y que están totalmente en línea con las primeras dos poéticas. En ellas, el autor de Las tres coronas del marinero revisa obras suyas y ajenas con la sagacidad enorme por la que ya es conocido, al tiempo que se aventura en ideas y conceptos posibles para pensar el cine como arte. Para ello, también, inventa situaciones y escenas a partir de las cuales desarrolla sendas reflexiones, de este tipo: "Contra lo que piensan muchos, no es la sombra la que confiere misterio a la imagen ni la luz la que resuelve el enigma. Dalí sabía lo que decía cuando le explicaba a Hitchcock que en los sueños es el exceso de luz, y no su falta, lo que produce la impresión de irrealidad poética". Se muestra aquí, una vez más, como un observador implacable de su arte y de los alcances humanos y sociales de éste, demostrando una gran intuición y creatividad y una inteligencia filosófica y enciclopédica que jamás prescinde del sentido del humor ni del sentido del detalle.

Raul Ruiz's, Mysteries of Lisbon, masterful adaptation of the eponymous nineteenth-century Portuguese novel (by Camilo Castelo Branco) evokes the complex intertwined narratives of Victor Hugo and Charles Dickens. The core story centers on Joao, the bastard child of an ill-fated romance between two members of the aristocracy who are forbidden to marry, and his quest to discover the truth of his parentage. But this is just the start of an engrossing tale that follows a multitude of characters whose fates conjoin, separate and then rejoin again over three decades in Portugal, Spain, France and Italy.
