(1972) A committee meeting, with polite, sober discussion of issues, but these are transcendent issues, and the men are be-robed crucifix-wearers – it’s a rural Anglican religious community; and yet still emphatically human: one crabby monk can’t get along with the abbot, but is Mr. Genial when in town. 16mm. Approx. 86 mins.   

Reviews

“A superb human comedy — funny, pathetic, touching, absurd, moving.”
– The New York Times
