Ludger Pistor liked the screenplay and was briefly attached to the monk role in this short about the Middle Ages. It would have meant coming full circle for him since he started his career with a bit part as medieval monk in The Name of the Rose (1986) See more »

Quotes

Bauer: [the monk and the peasant discover an castle ruin in the woods] What kind of place is this, Brother?
[laughs]
Bauer: The forest has spat out a fortress here.
Mönch: What a sublime shelter for us! Razed to the ground. Long before we were Born this castle was conquered and wrecked. Only ruins bear witness to the proud line. Mother nature has got this site back. Sic transit gloria mundi!
Bauer: This seems a good place to rest.
