LINES OF WELLINGTON has been selected to represent Portugal for the Best foreign language film Award at the 86th Academy Awards ceremony

Since its theatrical release in October 2012, this movie became the fourth national production in the ranking of the most seen Portuguese titles of the year.


On September 27, 1810, the French troops commanded by Marshal Massena, were defeated in the Serra do Buçaco by the Anglo-Portuguese army of general Wellington.

Despite the victory, Portuguese and British are forced to march à frente of the enemy, numerically superior, in order to attract them to Torres Vedras, where Wellington had built fortified lines hardly surmountable.
