The Name of the Rose in the summer theatre Slavica

Written by  Jul 26, 2016

As a part of the Dubrovnik Summer Festival movie programme, 'The Name of the Rose' will be shown tonight at the summer theatre Slavica at 9.30 pm.
It is a famous drama - thriller from 1986 directed by Jean-Jacques Annaud, based on the novel of one of the greatest contemporary philosophers and writers Umberto Eco, with Sean Connery in the lead role.

In 1327 the renowned English Franciscan, who is played by the famous Sean Connery comes withs his student (Christian Slater) in the Benedictine Abbey in northern Italy, where he will discuss the future of the Catholic Church in which at that time there are several different, contradictory currents. Before most of the guests arrive, several mysterious murders happen. Although the festival audience has probably already read this classic of world literature, tense action of the film will not disappoint. On the contrary, since it was made, the movie keeps on attracting the audience.
