Critic Reviews for The Monastery: Mr. Vig and the Nun
The film, letting us read between the lines, creates a charming depiction of two people who become necessary to each other.
The truths of [the subject's] life, no matter how unbelievable they may seem at times, make him almost heroic and the film almost perfect.
The Monastery is like the opposite of Into Great Silence.
Takes 80-plus minutes to cover what happened over the next six years as this oddest of odd couples feud, fuss and finally become friends.
Audience Reviews for The Monastery: Mr. Vig and the Nun
A beautiful documentary. Simple story. The characters are lovable and their conflict is interesting. The love that develops through their differences is awesome.
Documentary is supposed to reveal to the viewer parts of life that we may not know or understand. The Monastery is a perfect example of seeing that which we have never glimpsed before. A heartwarming story of an old man's last wish and the nun who trives to achieve her tries to make his wish come true, while doing what is best for her church. A tangled web of stand-offs and misunderstandings culminate in a memorable and fulfilling climax.
