A supernatural thriller adapted from Matthew G. Lewis' (now cult) 1796 gothic novel, The Monk traces the corruption of a 16th Century, pious Capuchin Monk. Abandoned at birth at the gates of a Capuchin monastery in Madrid, Brother Ambrosio (Vincent Cassel), raised by the friars, grows up into a preacher admired far and wide for his fervor.  Ambrosio is feared for his righteousness and believes he is immune from temptation until the arrival of a mysterious apprentice undermines his convictions and leads him down a path of unmentionable sin, corruption and murder.
