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 ...

This film makes you sing.
14 August 2005 | by dunburSee all my reviews

Because the monks cannot support their monastery (in the north of Germany - filmed on the location of the beautiful monastery Chorin) anymore, they are forced out and have to join the only other monastery of their (fictional) order in Italy (with which they have a century old conflict, but that's not the story. The remaining monks, i.e. three, hit the road with hardly more that their robes. They all get tempted and distracted from their path, but finally all ends well. These temptations yield wonderful discourses on religion, a love story, and good view on life in general.

What makes the film so wonderful is the music. This order has specialized in choir singing. If you now think "Oh, I don't like choirs. That's not my film.", you still should give it a try. The music completes this wonderful film, is an integral part of the story, and is really moving. You will love it, regards of your usual musical preferences.

But may be you should see the film with a good sound system.
