Fernando Rey and Gonzalo Vega feature as two screenwriters who retreat to a monastery to pen their next work. During their stay, they witness the slow toil of monastic life and become fixated upon a local girl, played by Maribel Verdu.
There is very little plot to speak of - the two writers compete for the affection of Verdu, even though Fernando Rey looks more like her grandfather. Maribel performs excellently as the wily minx looking to be cast in a screen role.
The saving grace of the film is the beautiful lush setting and insight into monastic life.
