The Name Of The Rose
THE NAME OF THE ROSE is based on the book of the same name by Umberto Eco. The story takes place in Northern Italy, during the early 14th century. Franciscan monk William of Baskerville (Sean Connery) and his novice Adso of Melk arrive at a Benedictine abbey where a mysterious death has occurred ahead of an important theological Church conference. William, known for his deductive and analytic mind, confronts the worried Abbot and gains permission to investigate the death – a young illuminator appears to have committed suicide. Over the next few days, several other bizarre deaths occur, and the two gradually discover that everything is not what it seems in the abbey.
The film will be screened with German and French subtitles.
