Don’t expect a retread of the lurid “…Da Vinci Code”

“There Be Dragons” is not intended to be the cinematic equivalent of a “poster” or “user’s manual” for Opus Dei, Joffe said. But viewers also should not expect a retread of the lurid conspiracy theories propagated by “The Da Vinci Code” and its film adaptation.

“I think Dan Brown (the author of “The Da Vinci Code”) misused Opus Dei … in a rather unpardonable way,” Joffe said. “I hope, in some ways, this movie will set the balance straight, but that’s not the objective of the movie. I just think it’s maybe a byproduct.”

    Good. I was optomistic that no-one would have been gullible enough to believe the davinci code or any of its inferences, but some recent conversations have surprised and disappointed me in that regard. I look forward to there be dragons as an antidote.
