The sun rises. Everything is calm and still as Benedict Cumberbatch’s meditative voice reads an extract from Thich Nhat Hanh’s early journals. So begins this fascinating and immersive exploration of what it means to devote one’s life to mindfulness. With unprecedented access to the famous secluded monastery of Plum Village in the South West of France, Walk with Me – a crowd-pleaser at 2017’s BFI London Film Festival – captures the daily routine and rituals of monks and nuns on a quest to develop a deep sense of presence. A welcome remedy to the stresses of city life and a world in turmoil.
