The Name Of The Rose (1986)

Short Story : Medieval murder mystery starring Sean Connery and Christian Slater.
Sex scene : On first appearance this film was just about some monks but then - bam! - the infamous 'roll in the hay' scene begins between Slater and his Chilean co-star Valentina Vargas.

long Story : Rose presents a very unusual detective story. Set in a 14th century Italian monastery, we meet Brother William of Baskerville (Sean Connery), a monk who comes for a debate between his Franciscan order and representatives of the pope. They plan to discuss whether the church should be poor or not. William brings his young novice Adso (Christian Slater) with him, and they immediately encounter a problem. Brother Adelmo recently died under suspicious circumstances, and if William doesn’t investigate, some fear the Inquisition will eventually come to check out the matters.
This sets up a battle between faith and science. William adopts clinical investigation methods, but others feel that evil spirits caused Adelmo’s demise. William thinks Adelmo killed himself, but another corpse turns up before he develops his theory. Greek translator Venantius (Urs Althaus) was clearly murdered, but William remains convinced Adelmo committed suicide and he doesn’t know if there’s a connection between the two.
Adso wanders the grounds and meets malformed hunchback Salvatore (Ron Perlman) who offers a possible clue. We start to get information from Salvatore about a parchment that went from Adelmo to Venantius. Assistant librarian Brother Berengar (Michael Habeck) seems to be the key, but William can’t find him, and he’s not allowed to visit the abbey’s library.
The movie follows the investigation but doesn’t conclude when William makes his determination. Instead, Bernardo Gui (F. Murray Abraham) of the Inquisition comes and takes over the hunt. He runs a search for heretics, and we learn of William’s past as an inquisitor. The rest of the flick depicts what happens between the two sides and also includes the fate of a local peasant girl (Valentina Vargas) who seduces Adso. Download movie for complete story...[ ]
