The Monk Reviews

A work whose elegant atmospherics ultimately overwhelm the story, even with the terrific Vincent Cassel in the title role.

What repulsed Coleridge in the novel clearly amuses the French director Dominik Moll in his diverting if somewhat thin adaptation.

By the end, "The Monk" has revealed itself to be a too- predictable potboiler, served piping hot.

If only director Dominik Moll (who has clearly studied his Luis Bu˝uel) had not staged this bitter psychological horror story at half speed.

A beautiful-looking film that portends disaster. And disaster arrives, eventually. It just takes its time getting there.

Not bad for a robe-ripper along the lines of The Thorn Birds, but Diary of a Country Priest it ain't.

"The Monk" is, first and foremost, a classy B-movie, keen to offer Gothic atmosphere, nudity, and mild shocks.

There's always room for another adaptation of Matthew Lewis's 1795 scandal-igniting ur-Gothic novel, and this lavish French turn positively seethes with the strain of Christian sex-dread and debauchery.

The finale, in which godly rites are juxtaposed against the vilest of sins, builds to an unholy power.

Adaptation of gothic classic pleases the eye but ultimately disappoints.

The photography and design are high points, with a night-time religious procession that is very freaky indeed.
