Storyline

Dan Brown's controversial best-selling novel about a powerful secret that's been kept under wraps for thousands of years comes to the screen in this suspense thriller from Director Ron Howard. The stately silence of Paris' Louvre museum is broken when one of the gallery's leading curators is found dead on the grounds, with strange symbols carved into his body and left around the spot where he died. Hoping to learn the significance of the symbols, police bring in Sophie Neveu (Audrey Tautou), a gifted cryptographer who is also the victim's granddaughter. Needing help, Sophie calls on Robert Langdon (Tom Hanks), a leading symbolized from the United States. As Sophie and Robert dig deeper into the case, they discover the victim's involvement in the Priory of Sion, a secret society whose members have been privy to forbidden knowledge dating back to the birth of Christianity. In their search, Sophie and Robert happen upon evidence that could lead to the final resting place of the Holy ...

Trivia

In the novel, Dan Brown claims that the Disney movie The Little Mermaid (1989) gave its heroine Ariel red hair, as a reference to paganism, and a symbolic grail story. This is inaccurate. Ariel, in fact, had red hair to distinguish her from Madison, in Splash (1984) (the first collaboration between Ron Howard and Tom Hanks). Tom Hanks went on to play Walt Disney in Saving Mr. Banks (2013). See more »

Goofs

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 »

An entertaining, yet not spectacular movie about the book that made the World talk.
17 May 2006 | by marta-63See all my reviews

I just watched the film, and even though I liked it, I must confess, I too expected more. I can't precisely point out what was missing and what I was expecting, but some it has some details that weren't there, some small imprecisions, some little things could have been better.

Nevertheless, a pleasant movie to watch. I confess I need to see it again, since I saw it from 3 to 6 am, with very few hours of sleep on the night before. I suggest the ones who read the book to re-read it before they go see it - to add a little bit more perspective. To those who haven't, I wish you a lovely time at the movies - it really is pleasant to see.

Praise to Audrey Tautou, a beautiful splendid actress, and all the other actors that don't need any more praise, like Ian McKellen, Jean Reno and Tom Hanks, who I didn't see fit the part at first, but who grew on me half-way through the movie, if not sooner. A huge praise to Paul Bettany too, for his astonishing and disturbing performance as Silas.

I give it an 8, because it's one of the first movies made from books that did not make me go 'Oh, this was not like this in the book' every five seconds. I never saw Ron Howard as the ideal director for this movie - but he pulled it off decently, though a bolder choice would have been in order.
