Review of The Monastery
Of all the scenes in the show, the most interesting part for me was when the hermit (Brother Xavier) was asked:
Q: "And your goal is?"
Q: "To die?"
H: "Sure: that's what were all living for, isn't it?"
Q: "it's just, you understand that it sounds unusual?"
H: "um, yes, I'm preparing for death."
Q: "I can't get over... it seems so sad."
H: "Sad? ... ah... I'm looking forward to it, it's going to be a great adventure!"
Reminds me of Bonhoeffer's words on death.
