John Turturro
19 June 2019 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

He is the motif for see this serie. Because it gives the expected and the hoped William of Baskerville. But, except him, in many scenes, I prefer the version from 1986. The motif - real simple - the novel is ignored and, in the first episode of serie, the occasions to regret the mix of "ad usum Delphini" and the absence of respect for novel, giving a sort of improvisation is present. You feel regret for John Turturro, prisoner in the cage of paper abbey. Sure, a serie for television. Off course, an Italian one. But you feel than the novel deserves a better perspective, because, in generous manner, Umberto Eco gives everything for a memorable serie. In same measure, I miss Feodor Chaliapin Jr. Very much. His Jorge de Burgo was Jorge of novel, like John Turturro William de Baskerville.And , off course, Salvatore proposed by Ron Perlman. James Cosmo and Stefano Fresi are , maybe, decent options if you ignore the book. Sure, great expectations about Bernardo Gui of Rupert Everett.
