    Synopsis


    Of Gods and Men
    Men of faith find their pacifist beliefs put to the test in this drama from filmmaker Xavier Beauvois, inspired by a true story. Christian (Lambert Wilson) is the leader of an order of Trappist monks living in the hills outside Algiers. The community outside the monastery is almost exclusively Muslim, and the monks have worked to foster understanding between themselves and their neighbors; they observe Muslim traditions, are well versed in the Koran, and provide medical and charitable assistance to the townspeople. The monastery is an oasis of calm and peace as Algeria is caught up in a civil war, with forces led by Muslim extremists leading a bloody campaign against the nation's rulers. Christian and his monks do not wish to take sides in a conflict they believe is immoral; they refuse the protection of the military while also denying aid and comfort to the insurgents. The monks' efforts to remain outside the war, however, have ugly consequences when they're taken hostage by a band of Islamic revolutionaries. Des Hommes et des Dieux (aka Of Gods and Men) was an official selection at the 2010 Cannes Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

      Film about 8 Trappist monks facing terrorists

      Posted
      GreatMoviesAllTheTime

      Tis film details the life of 8 Trappist monks and how they deal with the rising terrorist tensions in Algeria. Throughout the film you see how they are nonjudgmental, helping both sides of the conflict. But when their protectorate from the Islamic terrorist group is killed in fighting with government forces, they become a bargaining chip.

      These men featured in this true story were brave spiritual men who gave from their hearts and souls to help people. They sacrificed their lives to serve those who needed their help, aid, and love. They truly lived the principle of Jesus Christ when he said, "Feed thy Sheep!"
