Reviews
Mine: Top notch mystery. The best non-Bond performance the Connery had hone. A great look to the film. I may be biased since I like Sherlock Holmes so much and this a Holmes Mystery.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Unusual film (to say the least) based on Umberto Eco's best-seller, which places a Sherlock Holmesian monk (Connery) in the midst of a mysterious Italian abbey during the inquisition of the 13th century. Too provocative to dismiss, too lumbering to thoroughly enjoy, buoyed considerably by Connery's charismatic performance.

Well, it's a good movie! However, they could have done a better job bringing out more aspects of the book into this great film. Umberto Eco's novel is thrilling and capturing, whereas the movie missed some of those capturing moments. But all in all a great movie.
