Storyline

The young Goldmund is sent by his father to study in the monastery Mariabronn and meets there on the religious monastic student Narcissus. Narcissus has dedicated himself to the ascetic and austere life in the monastery with heart and soul and Goldmund first tries to imitate him. An intimate friendship soon develops between the two, but the boisterous and fun-loving Goldmund soon realizes that the life perspective the convent offers does not match his ideas of freedom and, emboldened by Narcissus, embarks on a journey full of adventure in which he finally meets his great love Lene. But years later, Narcissus and Goldmund meet again under dramatic circumstances .

User Reviews

 
Disappointing adaptation of a masterpiece book
16 March 2020 | by denis-23791See all my reviews

Despite incredibly beautiful cinematography and a great story, the film is not able to transport the emotions of the original book. Some of the main cast is simply not convincing, perhaps there was not the right chemistry with the provenly talented director. Probably more enjoyable for people that don't know the book.
