When Fache shows Langdon the hidden writings with the UV lamp, there are only the Fibonacci's suite and the Latin quote. Later in the bathroom, Sophie Neveu tells him Fache erased the last line which was "P.S. find Robert Langdon" and shows him a picture with the complete message.
Later, when they both come back to the murder's scene, Neveu and Langdon are trying to decipher the hidden message using the UV lamp. For a short moment, over Langdon's shoulder we are able to see the line Fache has supposedly erased. See more »
Stop now. Tell me where it is.
You and your brethren possess what is not rightfully yours.

Is it a secret you will die for?

Okay, let me start off by saying that I absolutely loved the book - it had me hooked more than Harry Potter - and that's saying something (and no I'm not a 10 year old child)! After hearing about the critics' mainly negative views of the film, I approached it without high expectations, and for that, I was rewarded. What I got was an action-packed film that didn't let up until the dying minutes. This film is incredibly faithful to the book (I'm looking at you, Girl With a Pearl Earring!!) to the point where hardly anything is left out, and only minor things have been changed. The visuals are stunning, the acting of Hanks and Tautou is great - and contrary to certain critics opinions - I felt the emotional connection between them. As always, McKlellan is fun to watch, effortlessly bringing Teabing to life, and Reno suffices as Fache. Bettany is fantastic as Silas. The musical score was as good as the visual look of the film - it paired perfectly with the storytelling. Overall, I left the cinema feeling satisfied, because a great book had been turned into a really good film. Approach this film with little expectation, and you will enjoy the ride. Bravo Ron Howard, for doing such a good job.
