  • The Name of the Rose

    1986. West Germany/Italy/France. Directed by Jean-Jacques Annaud. With Sean Connery, Christian Slater, Helmut Qualtinger. Based on Umberto Eco’s international best seller, Annaud’s medieval thriller is at once intellectually rigorous and wholly immersive. To capture the year 1327, Ferretti consulted with a team of historians to ensure the authenticity of over 3,000 conceptual sketches before beginning set construction. Ferretti’s inspirations were myriad, with the abbey exteriors recalling the religious architecture of Emilia-Romagna, while the labyrinthine library staircase, built on site in Cinecittà studios, takes its cue from M.C. Escher and Piranesi. 130 min.
