Into the Great Silence

If you are a reader of The New Liturgical Movement blog, you would have undoubtedly read about the opportunity to order a copy of "Into the Great Silence" as well as been able to see a few truly amazing pictures from the film.

However, if you have not done so, I would like to post about "Into the Great Silence". The movie is a documentary of a Carthusian monastery in France produced by filmmaker Philip Gronin. "Into the Great Silence" reveals the austere life that the monks like. In the 169-minute film, talking does not appear until roughly 20 minutes into the movie. The film does contain the chanting of the monks, which they do daily, and viewers can watch the lives of one of the strictest Christian, monastic orders. Contemplative silence governs the life of the monks.

I am personally looking forward to see the film. For information on the Carthusian Order, see Wikipedia. A trailer for the film is available on YouTube.
