Brasilian director Andrucha Waddington, the author of acclaimed “Me, You, Them” returns on the screens with a story full of adventures from life of one of the greatest poets and playwrights of the Golden Age – Lope de Vega. Gifted young writer returns to Madrid from the war filled with ambition, eager to live, to write, to make his dreams a reality… Penniless, he is forced to work as a humble copyist. De Vega was a very colorful character: soldier, artist, priest, husband and unmatched lover, irresistible for woman as nobody else. Lope, Spanish Brazilian superproduction with star cast (Luis Tosar, Leonor Watling, Antonio de la Torre) is a story about an adventurous youth of the writer: his first romances, problems with law, court intrigues, and the beginnings of a great artistic career.
