Award-winning German documentary cataloguing the lives of the inhabitants of a remote monastery. The film, which offers an intimate portrayal of the everyday lives of Carthusian monks of the ascetic Grande Chartreuse, high in a remote corner of the French Alps (Chartreuse Mountains), was made some 17 years after the director initially requested permission. He lived at the monastery for six months, and filmed alone behind the walls that no 'outsider' had ever been allowed to enter before. The film presents snapshots of random moments including monks frolicking in the snow, preparing a vegetable garden for spring seeding, and a summer Sunday outing during which monks are free to socialise.
