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 ...

Nice German Roadmovie
19 August 2002 | by (Karlsruhe, Germany) – See all my reviews

The quality of this film is mainly based on three columns: The good performance of the actors, a simple, but entertaining story and the brilliant film music.

It is the music maybe, that raises this movie into the rink of high quality films. Even if you dislike gregorian choral singing(like me), you will love them after having watched this movie. The scenes where the monks chorus are outstanding and overwhelming.

Conclusion: Do not only watch, but listen to this movie.
