Movie Info

With unprecedented access, WALK WITH ME goes deep inside a Zen Buddhist community who have given up all their possessions and signed up to a life of chastity for one common purpose - to transform their suffering, and practice the art of mindfulness with the world-famous teacher Thich Nhat Hanh. Filmed over three years, in their monastery in rural France and on the road in the USA, this visceral film is a meditation on a community grappling with existential questions and the everyday routine of monastic life. As the seasons come and go, the monastics' pursuit for a deeper connection to themselves and the world around them is amplified by insights from Thich Nhat Hanh's early journals, narrated by Benedict Cumberbatch.

Sometimes dreamy but mostly dissatisfying, "Walk With Me" offers no clarity for the curious.

The film's great merit is that it shares the difficulty of reaching its goal: nothing more difficult than to endure one's own silences, like those of a documentary with images of individual and collective meditation. [Full review in Spanish]

September 11, 2017 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

It's possible that the 94 minutes spent watching Walk With Me may be a suspension of life and its wonders, but Pugh and Frances have made a documentary which is fascinating enough to be worth the risk.
