I love it !
27 June 2019 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

I love it ! Sure, it is not perfect and the subplots are the basic huge sin. But ... It gives the opportunity to John Turturro to perform my expected Guglielmo de Baskerville. The fight for the right faith are the novel pieces. The soundtrack- yes, I love it very much. Stefano Fresi does a good job and many actors are real good in the roles of friars. The costumes, for a man like me, without interest in fashion questions, were fascinating, for texture and for the lovely photography. The sins - many. Maybe, the basic are the subplots and the desire of director to explain everything. The effort of Michael Emerson to save his role was huge but without real effect. A good point for Nina Fotaras job. My regret- the fight of Rupert Everett with Bernardo Gui. I am a long term admirer of Everett and I expect from him more in this case. Sure, he gives a decent to good performance but he seems prisoner of script. He remains the evil man . But, in essence, Bernardo Gui is more and Rupert Everett can give, in brilliant manner, this "more". The serie is beautiful and, against its sins, I repeat, I love it. Because , in few senses, it is better than the version of Jean- Jacques Annaud and in the other it deserves to be better. But, sure, for a good , the expected , in my case, Guglielmo, I am profound indulgent about this "Il Nome Della Rosa".
