Filmmaker Philip Groning lived in the Carthusian quarters for six months–filming their daily prayers, tasks, rituals and rare outdoor excursions. This transcendent, closely observed film seeks to embody a monastery, rather than simply depict one–it has no score, no voiceover and no archival footage. More meditation than documentary, it’s a rare, transformative experience for all. Two discs. Disco one is the Film. Disc Two is Special Features–One hour of additional scenes, Night Office, A guide to the Carthusians and more. 162 Minutes. Minimal French with optional subtitles.
