The Da Vinci Code
starring Tom Hanks, Audrey Tatou, Ian McKellan, Jean Reno and Alfred Molina
written by Akiva Goldsman
directed by Ron Howard
I read the book by Dan Brown a couple of years ago. Then I went to see the film in a cinema in Canada during the summer, not because I admired the story so much as from a feeling of excitement stirred up by all of the Da Vinci Code publicity. Having seen the film I can say (once more) than the book was dumb, and the movie is dumber.
