The Ninth Gate
- movie Description
The Ninth Gate is a 1999 horror thriller directed by Roman Polanski. Dean Corso (Johnny Depp) is an ambitious and driven rare book dealer. He has little passion for the works he peddles, instead only interested in earning money. When Boris Balkan (Frank Langella), an affluent client, approaches Dean to verify the authenticity of a mysterious 17th century manuscript, Dean jumps at the chance. As he investigates the text, Dean learns that it is reputed to be written by Satan himself and can apparently also summon the devil. He travels to Europe to figure out whether the book is the genuine article or one of the two known duplicates. However, Dean finds a string of mysterious deaths connected to the book's previous owners. In addition, many people seem desperate to get the book back from him, including Liana (Lena Olin). Before he even fully grasps what is happening, Dean is involved in a conspiracy that makes him wonder if the dark legends are true.moreless
