SYNOPSIS

Silence. Repetition. Rhythm. An almost silent meditation on monastic life. The life of men who devote their lives to God in the purest form. Contemplation. No music except the chants, no interviews, no commentaries. INTO GREAT SILENCE is the first film ever about life inside the Grande Chartreuse, based in the French Alps and the mother house of the legendary Carthusian Order ... From the director of the award-winning L’AMOUR, L’ARGENT, L’AMOUR and THE TERRORISTS.
