The Da Vinci Code Religious conspiracies and code-breaking in the adaptation of the bestselling book
Plot Following the savage murder of Louvre curator Saunière, Harvard symbology professor Robert Langdon (Hanks) is embroiled in a plot involving a sexy police cryptologist, a jet-setting bishop, an albino monk assassin and the French rozzers that could lead to the discovery of the Holy Grail.
