The Name of the Rose (1986)

Directed by
Jean-Jacques Annaud

Atmospheric murder mystery set in an Italian monastery in the Middle Ages where a council of Dominicans and Franciscans is assembling. One of the Franciscan delegates, William of Baskerville, turns sleuth to unravel the sinister events. The medieval era is potently evoked, and the labyrinthine interior of the monastery and the ominous presence of the Inquisition are truly chilling. Based on the novel by Umberto Eco.
