Into Great Silence

Into Great Silence (2005) - (dir:Philip Gröning")

Almost three hours of lyrical footage of monks at the Grand Chartreuse monastery in the French Alps, with no talking. It is not all silence. You hear the sound of things like pages turning when they are reading, shoes on the floor when they walk, utensils hitting pots and pans in the kitchen, rain falling, a monk calling cats at feeding time, and so forth; filmed in 2005 by Philip Gröning during a six-month stay in the monks' quarters.
