Trivia

The novel contains a sequence in which Sophie and Langdon escape from a museum guard by Sophie threatening to destroy a Da Vinci painting. These scenes are not in the theatrical release of the film, although they were filmed, and images from the scene are included with the published screenplay. Some of these scenes are restored to the film in the Extended Edition DVD, available in Great Britain (region 2), but as of 2007, not available in the Americas. See more »

Goofs

If Sophie's grandfather Jacques knew that the holy grail is safely kept at Louvre and no one except Sophie's grandmother (who even Sophie or the Teacher didn't know about, the Teacher even didn't know Sophie was Jacques' granddaughter) knew about it, why did he ask Sophie to find Langdon? If he wanted Sophie to know about her lineage and/or holy grail, her grandmother who herself is a Priory of Sion member could explain it better than Langdon. There is no danger either to Sophie or Sophie's grandmother or to the holy grail. Silas could never get the holy grail with the information Jacques gave and it was just a red herring. If he wanted Sophie to find her family or her grandmother, all he had to do was do nothing. Her grandmother who knew about Sophie would find her anyway after things calmed down. See more »

An entertaining, yet not spectacular movie about the book that made the World talk.
17 May 2006 | by (Portugal) – See all my reviews

I just watched the film, and even though I liked it, I must confess, I too expected more. I can't precisely point out what was missing and what I was expecting, but some it has some details that weren't there, some small imprecisions, some little things could have been better.

Nevertheless, a pleasant movie to watch. I confess I need to see it again, since I saw it from 3 to 6 am, with very few hours of sleep on the night before. I suggest the ones who read the book to re-read it before they go see it - to add a little bit more perspective. To those who haven't, I wish you a lovely time at the movies - it really is pleasant to see.

Praise to Audrey Tautou, a beautiful splendid actress, and all the other actors that don't need any more praise, like Ian McKellen, Jean Reno and Tom Hanks, who I didn't see fit the part at first, but who grew on me half-way through the movie, if not sooner. A huge praise to Paul Bettany too, for his astonishing and disturbing performance as Silas.

I give it an 8, because it's one of the first movies made from books that did not make me go 'Oh, this was not like this in the book' every five seconds. I never saw Ron Howard as the ideal director for this movie - but he pulled it off decently, though a bolder choice would have been in order.
