The Monk

Ambrosio, the monk, draws enormous crowds to his sermons, but in a city where superstition reigns with such despotic sway as in Madrid, to seek for true devotion would be fruitless. The gorgeous Madonna, the anxious novice and the reluctant nun understand more of the real passions unveiled in a Gothic tale of disguise, abduction, incest and murder.
