Re: Movies Seen in 2012
Vincent Cassel is many things, but he's not young or exceptionally handsome, so he's a bit of a stone's throw from the Monk's Ambrosio. A rather dour if largely faithful adaption of the Matthew Lewis novel, it lacks the vicious schadenfraude that the novel so gleefully indulges in with its title character. Passable, anyway.
That's one of my favourite novels, so it's disappointing to here that it didn't work. Always seemed like it would make a great movie to me.
