Into Great Silence (Die Groe Stille) is a documentary film directed by Philip Grning that was first released in 2005. It is an intimate portrayal of the everyday lives of Carthusian monks of the Grande Chartreuse, high in a remote corner of the French Alps (Chartreuse Mountains). The film was made 16 years after the director first requested permission to make it. He lived at the monastery for six months, and filmed all alone; behind the walls no "outsider" had ever before been allowed to enter.Answered by Chandra sekhar Krishnan, 07 Apr '10 04:26 pm
