Narziss und Goldmund

Narcissus and Goldmund

Stefan Ruzowitzky

As a young man Goldmund is sent away to a monastery by his father to atone for his mother’s sins; here he meets the novice Narcissus, and a profound friendship is begun. Some years later, handsome, wise and reserved, Narcissus chooses to continue living his life in prayer and meditation whereas Goldmund, passion- ate, sensual and impulsive, chooses a path away from the monastery to become an ad- venturer, relishing the highs and lows of pain and ecstasy. A highly dramatic moment brings the friends together once more.
