Director Jean-Jaques Annaud performed the impossible by bringing Umberto Eco's dense medieval detective story to the screen. Sean Connery is Brother-William of Baskerville, who engages in a monastic game of Cluedo in an attempt to solve a series of murders in the face of-opposition from the church hierarchy, in shape of F.Murray Abraham.
