I have seen the 1st movie of this book and i feel this version far exceeds it. It gave an authentic realism that made me feel i was in that time of history. The actors were all convincing of being all so "human" with their vices and faults. This story was to make you think and was glad that the murderer was not made to stick out as the obvious choice. I truly enjoyed this production of "The Name of the Rose".

The abrupt scene cuts are annoying and distracting in an otherwise mediocre program.
