A light-hearted look at a 900-year-old order of monks in Austria that is known for its Gregorian chants.

The order recently made a CD that climbed several hits charts in Europe. Here we get an easy-going travelogue through their region and the order's grounds -- we watch as the monks take questions from tourists and play basketball and garden in their flowing white robes.

We are also treated to answers of questions many of us would want to ask, such as: Why would you enter a monastery when you can never marry? The brothers answer such queries with candor and good humor. It's pleasant and tranquil to listen to these people of depth.

Of visitors to their monastery, one says: "They have gone here like you go to a petrol station to get new power."

The casual viewer of this film may come away with the same impression.
