The Name of the Rose

High-Def Digest
11 August 2011
  • Conclusion: 'The Name of the Rose' is an intriguing murder mystery set in a 14th century monastery and starring Sean Connery, Christian Slater, Ron Perlman, and F. Murray Abraham. Based on the novel by Umberto Eco, director Jean-Jacques Annaud touches on some of the concerns explored by the book, namely the match between superstition, faith, empirical knowledge and the scientific method. The Blu-ray arrives with a very good video presentation and strong audio.

The Name of the Rose Blu-ray Review

26 July 2011
  • Conclusion: The Name of the Rose was a one of a kind novel, one which defied easy categorization and which required a great deal of attention be paid in order to ferret out its many references and mysteries. That argues against a successful film adaptation, but while this film inarguably loses some of the depth and grandeur of Eco's source novel, it's remarkably faithful to the spirit of the book and it manages to create a very viscerally creepy, almost Fellini-esque, ambience.
