First reported back in February 2010, Gallic thesp Vincent Cassel (the creepy, creepy dude from Sheitan and Black Swan) toplines The Monk, an 18th century-set thriller based on Matthew Lewis’ Gothic novel. The film is now complete and has a quad poster, alongside the first international trailer and a batch of stills.
The Monk depicts the rise and tragic downfall of Capucin Ambrosio, a respected Spanish monk. “The story concerns a Spanish monk named Ambrosio and his violent downfall. He is undone by carnal lust for his pupil, a woman disguised as a monk (Matilda), who is eventually revealed as an instrument of Satan in female form, who has orchestrated Ambrosio’s downfall from the start.”
The Madrid-set pic stars Deborah Francois, Sergi Lopez and Geraldine Chaplin (The Orphanage). French-German director Dominik Moll directs.
You’ll find more at the film’s official website.
