The Monk


France 2012, 100 mins
Director: Dominik Moll
Starring: Vincent Cassel

This sensual 17th-century period drama sees Vincent Cassel slip into man-of-the-cloth mode for German director Dominik Moll (LEMMING).

Cassel is Brother Ambrosio, a devout friar in a Madrid monastery whose extreme virtue has made him a local celebrity. In a dark twist of fate, forbidden fruit is placed before Ambrosio in the form of a masked woman disguised as a monk (Déborah François, UNMADE BEDS). His transgressions soon lead him to lust for another woman, the angelic Antonia (Joséphine Japy, NEUILLY SA MERE!), and Ambrosio begins to descend into madness as a result of his sins.

THE MONK is a gripping take on Matthew Lewis's acclaimed gothic novel.
