Description: You cannot put a value on prayer, like you can a product, it still remains a mysterya After ten years of correspondence, Michael Whyte was given unprecedented access to the monastery of the Most Holy Trinity, in Londonas Notting Hill. The monastery, which was founded in 1878, is home to the Discalced Order of Carmelite Nuns. The nuns lead a cloistered life dedicated to prayer and contemplation, rarely leaving the monastery except to visit a doctor or dentist. Silence is maintained throughout the day with the exception of two periods of recreation. No Greater Love gives a unique insight into this closed world where the modern worldas materialism is rejected they have no television, radio or newspapers. The film interweaves a year in the life of the monastery with the daily rhythms of Divine Office and work. Centred in Holy Week, it follows a year in which a novice is professed and one of the senior nuns dies. Though mainly an observational film there are several interviews, which offer insights into their life, faith, moments of doubt and their belief in the power of prayer in the heart of the community.
