The Monk is an adaptation of the classic 1796 gothic novel by Matthew Gregory Lewis, which follows the rise and fall of a Capuchin monk in 18th-century Spain. A Dangerous Method star Vincent Cassel takes the title role of the damned friar Ambrosio, who is tempted by a woman dressed as a monk into lusting after a young woman.
