Into Great Silence
A unique, transcendent and transporting cinematic event
I don't have much to say...
The Grande Chartreuse, the mother house of the legendary Carthusian Order, is based in the French Alps. This documentary is the first film ever about life inside the Grande Chartreuse. Silence. Repitition. Rhythm. The film is an austere, next-to-silent meditation on monastic life in a very pure form. No music except the chants in the monastery, no interviews, no commentaries, no extra material. A film about awareness, absolute presence, and the life of men who devoted their lifetimes to God in the purest form.
