Into Great Silence

Die grosse stille

Dir. Philip Gröning

Germany 2005 | Colour | 162 mins | Cert U

A contemplation of time. Silence, repetition, rhythm. Into Great Silence is the first film ever about life inside the Grande Chartreuse, the legendary Carthusian Order in the French Alps. A strict, next to silent meditation on monastic life in a very pure form, this is a film dealing with awareness, absolute presence, and men who devote their lifetimes to God in the purest manner.
