The Da Vinci Code (recenzja filmu)

Mimo, że szał na filmy oparte na książkach Dana Browna już minął, myślę, że ta recenzja napisana po angielsku Wam się przyda! W końcu chodzi o to by czytać po angielsku, nie?

The Da Vinci Code is a 2006 feature film based on the bestselling 2003 novel The Da Vinci Code, from author Dan Brown.

It was one of the most anticipated films of 2006, and was previewed at the opening night of the Cannes Film Festival on May 17, 2006. It was officially released on May 18.

Because of some controversial and fictional interpretations of Christian history, both the book and movie version of The Da Vinci Code have been the target of criticism by the Roman Catholic Church, which has urged members to boycott the film. Many of the early showings were accompanied by protesters outside the movie theaters, and early critical reviews were decidedly mixed. However, in its opening weekend, the film earned over US$224 million worldwide, second only to the opening of 2005's Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith.

The film follows a professor of symbology, Robert Langdon, as he is called to the scene of a grisly murder in the Louvre. Along with a young French cryptographer Sophie Neveu, Langdon tries to solve the message left by the victim in order to preserve a secret, kept for thousands of years, which could revolutionize the Christian faith.

The film rights were purchased from Dan Brown for $6,000,000. Filming had been scheduled to start in May 2005; however, some delays caused filming to begin on June 30, 2005.

Permission to film on the premises was granted to the film by the Louvre, while Westminster Abbey denied the use of its premises, as did Saint-Sulpice. Lincoln Cathedral, belonging to the Church of England, however, agreed to act as a substitute for Westminster Abbey, and reportedly received Ł100,000 in exchange for the right to film there. Filming at Lincoln Cathedral took place in August 2005. Filming also took place at Temple Church in London.

As well as shooting on location in France, London, and Germany, the filmmakers shot many of the internal scenes at Pinewood Studios. The film's opening sequence was filmed in the cavernous "Albert R. Broccoli's 007 Stage" at Pinewood where the interior of the Louvre was recreated, away from the priceless paintings in the actual museum in France.

In the film's opening sequence, Robert Langdon, played by Tom Hanks, discovers a body in the Louvre. David White of Altered States FX, a prosthetics and special makeup effects company which is based at London's Shepperton Studios was tasked with creating a naked photo-realistic silicone body for the scene.

Pinewood's state-of-the-art Underwater Stage was used to film underwater sequences. The stage opened in 2005 after four years of planning and development. The water in the tank is filtrated using an ultra violet system which creates crystal clear water and a comfortable environment to work in for both cast and crew.

At a conference on April 28, 2006, the secretary of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, a Vatican curial department, Archbishop Angelo Amato, specifically called for a boycott of the film version of The Da Vinci Code; he said the movie is "full of calumnies, offenses, and historical and theological errors."
