 General Description:

Into Great Silence is a contemplative documentary from filmmaker Philip Gröning, and in it the Grande Chartreuse monastery opens its doors to the public for the first time since being founded by St. Bruno in 1084 to offer an intimate look at a lifestyle rarely experienced by those outside of the brotherhood. Located in the remote regions of the French Alps, near the Dauphiné Alps, the Grande Chartreuse is the top monastery of the Carthusian order. In this documentary, the lives of the pious monks of Grande Chartreuse are captured on film as director Groening adapts to their ascetic lifestyle for six months and captures their daily life without the intrusion of voice-over, musical score, interviews, or archival footage. This transcendent film is one of the most mesmerizing and poetic chronicles of spirituality ever created. It is more meditation than documentary - it is a rare transformative experience for all. Original film languages are French and German. English subtitled.

164 minutes. DVD format only.

This is a Region 1 DVD (playable ONLY in Bermuda, Canada, the Cayman Islands, United States and U.S. territories)
