Die Grosse Stille

Saving me from thinking for myself, Fr PF - who was at the same showing as me - has written a good review of Die Grosse Stille.

I thought it was a beautiful film, and I'd very much like to see it again. I had an interesting experience while watching it, as I was with a blind friend and was roped into service as an audio describer, whispering as quietly as I could what was going on. Watching a film for someone else makes one think differently. Visually it was a slow and contemplative film, dwelling on each image at length - often one would see a door or window for a while, then something would 'happen' through it - monks walking past - then the camera would stay on the same shot for some time. Very beautiful. And rather hard to describe!

Pax et bonum omnibus!
