DVD Review: 'Breaking the Da Vinci Code'
Have you read Dan Brown's gripping thriller, The Da Vinci Code? Despite the fact that it is fiction, Brown complicates the matter by claiming that various descriptions of artwork, architecture, secret rituals, etc are factual. The book has caused a storm of controversy with its claims that the Christian church has conspired to suppress the truth about the Holy Grail. What is the truth? Breaking the Da Vinci Code will answer your questions about this stunning best-seller. Based on three other best-selling books -- Breaking the Da Vinci Code, The Da Vinci Deception, and Cracking Da Vinci's Code -- this DVD takes each of the major claims in Brown's book and uncovers the truth about them. Most of Dan Brown's alleged facts turn out to be just as fictitious as the plot of his novel. The DVD also contains a generous number of extra features including in-depth interviews and a tour of Rosslyn Chapel which features in the novel. A straight-forward, unsensationalised documentary. My Rating: ***1/2 (out of 5)
