The Monastery: Mr. Vig and the Nun

The other night we watched an interesting, albeit a bit odd, movie.

The Monastery: Mr. Vig and the Nun is a documentary about an old, eccentric man who wants to make something “everlasting” so he decides to turn his ancient castle into a Monastery.

Plot summary by the director: "50 years ago Jørgen Lauersen Vig bought Hesbjerg Castle, situated in the Danish country side, with the purpose of turning it into a monastery. Now, many years later, he is about to realize his old dream. A group of Russian Orthodox nuns are on their way, and thus Mr. Vigs life-long dream is about to come true. But, nuns have plans and wills of their own, and Mr. Vig must realize that the road to fulfilling his dream is very different than what he imagined."
