Synopsis

An Old Monk is about the body and the mind, and the impossibility of both being in harmony. Maybe just for a brief dance: 1. A man does a little dance. His body is pressed against a dream body. 2. A man does not dance anymore or very rarely. Failed attempts to become a monk. The great longing for silence and solitude. 3. And then, out of nowhere, the fantasy of a little dance comes to him. He is curious if there is still pleasure in life. The old monk does a little dance. Then another. And another.
