Mystery Unlocked

da-vinci-code-movie-poster.jpgAfter much controversy, the screen adaptation of Dan Brown’s best-seller, The Da Vinci Code is in theaters now. The film opens with the bizarre murder of Louvre curator Jacques Sauniere, who, in his dying moments managed to leave behind a number of clues and messages hidden in the artworks of Leonardo Da Vinci. The French police invites Harvard symbology professor Robert Langdon (Tom Hanks) to decipher the code they found near the dead body. Langdon concedes not knowing that he has already been considered a prime suspect. With the help of Sauniere’s granddaughter Sophie Neveu (Audrey Tautou, Amelie and A Very Long Engagement), Langdon is able to escape the police only to be trapped in a more intricate labyrinth. Soon they find themselves on the run from policeman Bezu Fache (Jean Reno), the albino monk Silas (Paul Bettany), and Archbishop Aringarosa (Alfred Molina). Robert and Sophie proceed to Robert’s colleague Sir Leigh Teabing to ask for his help to unravel a secret that–according to Sir Leigh–had been kept from humanity for centuries.

    i haven’t had the chance to read the book and i haven’t the least inclination to watch the movie right now (patawad, isa akong die-hard fan nina Bugs Bunny at Sponge-Bob kaya ang mga ganito ka-serious na pelikula ay wala sa aking mundo. hahaha), but who knows. someday, pag hupa na ang kontrobersya. pahiram muna ng book, avi. baka sakali maka-relate ako. after all, nabasa ko parts ng holy blood, holy grail (where is that damned book!? somebody stole it from my library).

    as usual, this review is a winner. balak kong gayahin ito, kaso hindi ako objective na tao. hehe. but really, in case somebody drags me to the movie for free, i just might see it – at gagawin kong reference itong review mo pag meron akong di maintindihan — and i’m sure marami yon. haha.

    kung sana si adrien brody na lang si Robert Langdon. hay. hindi ba bagay sa role, avi? sayang.

    …the book can be pure fiction until you suddenly realize that former French President Mitterrand was also mentioned as a member of the Priory of Sion and the controversy (that almost toppled his career) when he constructed the modern glass pyramid in front of the Louvre.

    I’m sure that Mike Velarde is just as secretive as the Vatican.

    Smile.
