Exclusive: The Monk Clip
Vincent Cassel loses the faith

16 April 2012  |  Written by Phil de Semlyen

When Vincent Cassel burst onto the scene his visceral turns offered a surfeit of rebellion, impressions of Robert De Niro and a bit of casual violence. La Haine's Vinz grew up to be one of the most magnetic screen actors of his era and this month he's back with issues of a more cerebral kind in French psycho-drama The Monk.

This new clip shows his Capucin friar, Ambrosio, sharing a doom-laden chat with a wizened - and possibly dying - elder monk. The gist? That some form of evil is at large in the monastery and it's up to him to track it down and, if necessary, punch it in the face.



Dominik Moll, the man behind underrated Hitchcockian black comedy Harry, He's Here to Help, has brought Matthew Lewis' 18th century potboiler to life. Judging by this snippet, it's safe to expect Gothic spooks a'plenty and questions of morality and faith that should provide an intriguingly monky companion piece to The Name Of The Rose.

The Monk takes his bow on April 27.
