The Da Vinci Code (2006)

The Da Vinci Code

Humanity has done some remarkably evil things in the name of religion. It has also done many altruistic ones for the same reason. It seems that a lot of them evolve from an interpretation of past pronouncements rather than direct statements. Such is the burden of human history that it leads us to a point where sides have been chosen with a goal of eliminating the presence of another. We have to ask ourselves whether what we infer that has gone on before needs to change or remain static. This is the question Robert Langdon (Tom Hanks) as a Harvard Professor of Symbology and Sophie Neveu (Audrey Tautou), a cryptologist and puzzle solver, ask themselves and one another. Their quest takes them around Europe, ending up in England with a stop in London at Westminister Abbey for a clue near the tomb of Sir Issac newton. We see them cross the street going to the abbey, overlaid with the day of Sir Issac’s funeral. There we see the attendees along with the London landscape of the time.
