Exclusive: Vincent Cassel Shares His Dream In Clip From 'The Monk'

The Playlist By Kevin Jagernauth | The Playlist February 19, 2013 at 10:01AM

Not only can Vincent Cassel move seamlessly from blockbusters to indie films while keeping a foot firmly in foreign cinema, but he does so in a manner that's always compelling to watch. And the past few years speak to the diversity of roles he's been taking, whether playing a famed gangster in the two-part "Mesrine," bringing psychological strain to Natalie Portman in "Black Swan," taking a part in the nervy "Our Day Will Come" or even putting James McAvoy through the wringer in Danny Boyle's upcoming "Trance." But before we see him do that, Cassel will don the cloak for "The Monk."

The Monk Vincent Cassel

Not only can Vincent Cassel move seamlessly from blockbusters to indie films while keeping a foot firmly in foreign cinema, but he does so in a manner that's always compelling to watch. And the past few years speak to the diversity of roles he's been taking, whether playing a famed gangster in the two-part "Mesrine," bringing psychological strain to Natalie Portman in "Black Swan," taking a part in the nervy "Our Day Will Come" or even putting James McAvoy through the wringer in Danny Boyle's upcoming "Trance." But before we see him do that, Cassel will don the cloak for "The Monk."

Directed by Dominik Moll ("With A Friend Like Harry...") and adapted from the 1796 cult novel by Matthew G. Lewis, the story follows Brother Ambrosio, a 16th Century, pious Capuchin Monk. Abandoned at birth at the gates of a monastery in Madrid, he was raised by the friars, growing up into an admired -- and feared -- preacher know for his righteousness. But soon temptation beckons, and a mysterious apprentice draws him down a dangerous path of sin, corruption and murder. Intriguing stuff indeed, and in this exclusive clip, Brother Ambrosio shares the details of an odd dream he's had that he's at a loss to explain.

"The Monk" will open on March 8th in theaters, and will also be available on VOD and for digital download. Check out the scene below.
