Synopsis:
With unprecedented access, this unique documentary experience takes us deep inside Thich Nhat Hanh's world-famous Plum Village monastery, and captures the life of a monastic community who have given up all their possessions for one common purpose - to practice the art of mindfulness. Filmed over three years, this visceral film is a meditation on a community determined to develop a deep sense of presence, not just for themselves but for all those they love. As the seasons come and go, the monastics' inner journey is amplified by insights from Thich Nhat Hanh's iconic early journals.

Walk with Me - Walk with Me review by ST

Spoiler Alert
08/01/2020

I enjoyed this film. It was a peaceful an interesting watch. The pace is slow- it is a film about mindfullness after all! - the insights into the Buddhist beliefs were great and how they live and how some of the young monks did express boredom with repetitive tasks in the kitchen. Cumberbatch was a bit annoying as narrator but the story he told was really lovely and I like the sentiments it expressed. Cinematography very pleasant in rural France.

Recommend this film.

Dorjes in the Dordogne. - Walk with Me review by GC

Spoiler Alert

For the first minutes I was slightly in dread of a film full of monks sat around, or walking around in silence. This is what monks do. However what unfolded was a very heartwarming, uplifting story of Plum Village and it's resident monks and nuns who follow the teachings of Thich Nhat Hanh.

I personally find Which Nhat Hanh's teachings a bit restrictive, but each to their own. I cried at times, especially as how he explained to a young girl how to overcome the sadness of loosing her 'doggy'. Very moving. Highly recommended to anybody interested in spirituality and especially Zen Buddhism.
