The Legend of Flying Cyprian
"A historical feature film inspired by the legend about a mysterious monk, alchemist, and healer, who by the end of the 18th century constructed a flying machine according to a lost book by Leonardo Da Vinci. One old legend tells this story: Ages ago, there was a master of thousand studies and arts, a doctor and a herbalist, who lived in a monastery hidden in the mountains. His name was Cyprian. He devised a flying machine, and flew it to God one day. That legend is true… The Red Monastery is a place where time stands still, far from the reaches of human civilisation. At the beginning of the 18th century, at the time when the story takes place, Camaldulite monks live their stereotype lives there, and do not realise how rapidly the surrounding world changes. One day, they find a half dead man lying in front of the monastery gates, and name him Cyprian. His past is full of adventures, love, pain and deaths. As the book of his life opens on its final pages, he must look back and and evaluate his life."
