Faithful to the book by Umberto Eco, this film is a lot of fun -- dark labyrinthine passages and strange characters populate this isolated setting. Sean Connery is terrific as the visiting cleric, and a very young Christian Slater plays his companion. I wasn't sure a film could do justice to the remarkable denoument of the book, but everything here is great, and makes you appreciate the Middle Ages in a less-than-romantic way.
If you like mysteries, this is a good one. If you like history come alive, you will enjoy this.

I rate the movie with four stars since it's a well written murder mystery taking place in an incredible location and time period. Having Sean Connery and F. Murray Abraham doesn't hurt either. The languid pace only befits the time and locale as well; allowing the viewer to savor every new detail and clue of the murders and overall plot. But would Warner Brothers dare to put this on DVD in the Standard format? I've got a sinking feeling this might be the case. They wouldn't be that inane would they?

This movie is a dark, forboding look into life in a corrupt Italian monastery, the spanish inquisition, and the catholic church in the middle ages. For those of you who like mysteries, spooky locals, superb plots, and fiendish villains, this movie is for you! It has remained one of my all time favorites throughout the years, and I'm both glad it is finally coming out on DVD, and furious it has taken so long to get there! Worth buying.

Finally for the first time in french !!! I have seen this movie on VHS tape and it had the french version. For other movies too that are older, I would like the french version like The Three Musketeers and the Four Musketeers by Richard Lester with Michael York, Oliver Reed, etc....
Excellent service and fast delivery !!! Thank you very much. I recommend this seller.

I have waited so long for this movie to be on DVD and when it finally comes it's a Standard version, why is the general public being robbed of widescreen for this movie or any movie? Every movie that is a "standard" is robbing 40% of the screen from the paying audience. The pan and scan doesn't work any more. I hope to buy this movie soon in Widescreen! PLEASE!

Sean Connery stars has a 14th century monk with his pupil in tow played by a young Christian Slater. They are sent to investigate a series of murders in a monastery. The series of bizarre deaths has the superstitious monks believing it is murders committed by the devil. But Connery believes otherwise. A great thriller and mystery with some nice spooky moments.

Amazon's service was great! No need to review the movie as there are many other sites that do this. Problem was it was a region 2 DVD not suitable for North American DVD players. I didn't catch that in the listing. Returned it no problem. Unfortunately, could not find a suitable replacement that isn't Blu-ray or a reasonable cost.

Other then a profit motive it's inconceivable why DVD's are released several times in various formats and special editions. Here's another example of a movie that I would like to purchase being released in a made for TV screen format rather then the widescreen version. Guess that I'll have to wait(again) before buying this DVD.

Everyone moaning on and on (and on and on) about the 'incorrect aspect ratio' have got the facts wrong.
The facts are that the film was shot in 1.85:1. The dvd's ratio is (you guessed it) 1:85:1. Therefore the dvd (as it states on the box!!!!) is the correct ratio. And it's a great film. BUY.

Truly brilliant!
It is a tale of monastic mystery and 14th century catholic inquisition inevitably leading innocent people (...and truth) to the flames.
Great acting, even by young Christian Slater.
I don't know why it took so long for such a great film to make it to DVD. (...)
