Critic Reviews for The Name of the Rose Season 1

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (2)

A medieval whodunit with moral firepower that reflects a reverence for books.

With approximately eight hours to tell its story, "Name," courtesy of the Italian channel Rai 1, allows its cloud of despair space to work its perverse magic and for the occasional, unintentional camp moment.

We can't imagine spending 6 hours of our lives slogging through The Name Of The Rose. You're better off getting a copy of the novel and reading that instead.

I'll note right here that although [John] Turturro is not at all what I or probably anyone who ever read the novel imagines when they imagine William [of Baskerville], he's enjoyable enough.

The Name of the Rose is all over the map qualitatively. Soon, like riddles and metaphors colliding somewhere in a labyrinth, it implodes upon itself.
