Historical mystery drama 1986
The Name of the Rose is about a murder in the monastery. The film is based on the book 'The Name of the Rose'. The film is set in Germany and Italy and starts in 1327. It tells the story of an old monk and a young monk who solve a murder in the Italian monastery. The story is difficult, but people who like history, (especially medieval European history) will like this movie.
Sean Connery acts as an old monk 'William', Christian Slater acts as a young monk 'Adaso'. There are no famous stars in the film. but the picture is very beautiful. Sean Connery is fantastic! William is a strict monk and he is searching enlightenment. He leads Adaso for the truth of the murder, like his father. It is a little awful but beautiful movie.
