Based on Umberto Eco's best-selling novel. Sean Connery is a monk-turned-detective who, together with his novice, Christian Slater, tries desperately to unravel the mystery of the Abbey's murders. Monks are being killed in all manner of ways, and as Brother Sean's investigations get underway, more is revealed to the audience of the darker side of Italian monastic life at the beginning of the 14th Century. It is a wonderfully observed film with stunning cinematography by Tonino Delli Colli, and there's some hideously grotesque monks.
