"Todo comienza una hermosa mañana de finales de noviembre del año 1327 cuando Fray Guillermo de Baskerville (Sean Connery), un monje franciscano y antiguo inquisidor, y su inseparable discípulo el novicio Adso de Melk (Christian Slater), que es quien relata la historia, acuden a una abadía benedictina situada en el norte de la península italiana para intentar esclarecer la muerte del joven miniaturista Adelmo da Otranto. Durante su estancia en la abadía van desapareciendo misteriosamente más monjes, a quienes encuentran muertos al poco tiempo. Lentamente, y gracias a la información aportada por algunos monjes, Guillermo va esclareciendo los hechos. El móvil de los crímenes parecen ser unos antiguos tratados sobre la licitud de la risa que se encuentran en la biblioteca del complejo, de la cual se dice que es la mayor del mundo cristiano. ¿Quién es el asesino? ¿Qué hicieron sus víctimas para morir asesinadas? Nadie lo sabe." --AVH web site

2 editions published in 2007 in French and held by 422 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Director Claude Berri's introduction on the title screens reads "This film is a true story but seen through the imagination a child particularly sensitive to the tragic events which surrounded him in occupied France. The warm affection of this family of good people who took him in nevertheless leaves him with a certain poetic nostalgia for this time and a deep gratitude toward them." This film is his re-telling and re-creation of the life of a small Jewish boy from in Nazi-occupied Paris, sent by his parents to the countryside to live with an elderly Catholic couple until France's liberation. Forced to hide his identity, eight-year-old Claude bonds with the irascible, staunchly anti-Semitic Grampa, who improbably becomes his friend and confidant
