Storyline

The story begins in a fictional monastery somewhere in northern Germany, of the "Cantorianer" order. We gather that this order claims to encounter God primarily in music, and that it was excommunicated from the Catholic Church many years ago. The last four monks are eking out a poor existence (but singing beautifully) among otherwise deserted buildings, when the landowner comes with an impossible demand for back rent. The Abbot has a heart attack, tells the others to take the precious old book containing the order's rules, and travel to the only other monastery of the order, in Italy; he then dies. The remaining three set out on foot across country with little idea of the route. Benno (Michael Gwisdek) acts as leader; he is an ascetic lover of books. Tassilo (Matthias Brenner) is always hungry. Arbo (Daniel Brühl) is still young - he came to the monastery as a baby and has never known the outside world. They nearly get run over by Chiara (Chiara Schoras), an attractive reporter from ...

16 June 2003 | by (Jena, Germany) – See all my reviews

Wonderful little road movie cum romantic comedy with some extras that make this movie special. Basically, Vayas con dios is a film about love and temptation. While there may have been better films in recent years, the central scene of this movie is the most beautiful scene I have seen in a long time. Here, all different kinds of love a portrayed in one crucial moment. Spirandelli, an opera director by trade, certainly knows how to stage his actors.
