I love this vintage documentary it is very inspiring. It shows how tradition has been maintained. Nothing seems to have changed in the Carmelite Order (who I stayed with for a couple of weeks) that is apart from the removal of the grill, and the slightly less physical work done by todays Carmelites.

I am from Britain and have met nuns, for study. This film was interesting and a thing of beauty.
Since those times, some convents have modified their strictness, but not all. There is a growing interest in such devotion and faith.eg the famous film "Into the silence", of previously hidden Carthusian monks.
Likewise, the uk film of the Carmelite nuns in London,
Such films are a wonderful glimse of another world, where God is loved.
Thank you for this lovely film!
