About the Movie

Now in theaters! The Monk follows the rise and fall of Ambrosio (Vincent Cassel, Black Swan, A Dangerous Method), a Capuchin Monk in 17th century Madrid. Abandoned as a baby on the steps of a monastery and raised in strict Capuchin fashion, Ambrosio has become the most famous preacher in the country. Large crowds from near and far come to hear his mesmerizing sermons and he has earned the admiration of all. Convinced of his virtue and righteousness, Brother Ambrosio thinks he is immune to temptation until obscure events start terrorizing the monastery. Could they be connected to the unexpected arrival of Valerio (Déborah François, Unmade Beds, The Child), a masked apprentice monk, or to Ambrosio’s confused attraction to a woman who openly admires him? Adapted from Matthew Gregory Lewis’ cult classic Gothic novel, The Monk explores seduction, secrets and dark deceits as Ambrosio gradually falls into depravity and sin.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: What repulsed Coleridge in the novel clearly amuses the French director Dominik Moll in his diverting if somewhat thin adaptation. – Manohla Dargis, New York Times, Mar 7, 2013

Rotten: A work whose elegant atmospherics ultimately overwhelm the story, even with the terrific Vincent Cassel in the title role. – Sheri Linden, Los Angeles Times, Mar 7, 2013

Fresh: The finale, in which godly rites are juxtaposed against the vilest of sins, builds to an unholy power. – Alan Scherstuhl, Village Voice, Mar 5, 2013

Fresh: "The Monk" is, first and foremost, a classy B-movie, keen to offer Gothic atmosphere, nudity, and mild shocks. – Ignatiy Vishnevetsky, Chicago Sun-Times, Mar 7, 2013
