The film's packed with messages in invisible ink, secret staircases, and corpses in cauldrons of pig's blood. -- Grade: B+
Rating: 2.5/4 -- There are so many good things in The Name of the Rose -- the performances, the reconstruction of the period, the over-all feeling of medieval times -- that if the story had been able to really involve us, there would have been quite a movie here. Full Review
Rating: 7/10 -- How you accept an English monk with a Scottish accent and the mind of a Sherlock Holmes is the question. Full Review
Based on the best-selling book by Italian author Umberto Eco. During a meeting of the papacy, a brilliant English monk, William of Baskerville, uses reason to solve a series of bizarre murders attributed to the devil--and risks being burned for heresy by the holy inquisition.
Based on Umberto Eco's best-selling novel, "The Name of the Rose" is a medieval whodunit set in a 14th-century Italian monastery. Franciscan monk William of Baskerville and a young novice arrive for a conference to find that several monks have been brutally murdered. In his attempt to solve the crimes, William must challenge the authority of the Catholic Church by eschewing religious fervor in favor of rational thought.
