Review
Into Great Silence is the first film about life inside The Grande Chartreuse, the Alpine mother house of the legendary Carthusian Order. This next to silent film, no music, except the chants in the monastery, no interviews, no commentaries, is an austere meditation on a very pure form of monastic life. The seasons come and go as do the rituals of the day and we are transported into the lives of the monks. An often hypnotic observation of awareness, absolute presence, and the life of men who devote their lives to God.
