Of Gods And Men

Today, I rented a fantastic film that I hadn’t heard of before. It’s a French film called “Of Gods and Men”. It’s a ‘based on real life’ story about a small Trappist monastery in Algeria in the 90s. There are fundamentalist Muslims threatening the area and they have to decide whether or not to stay or leave, abandoning the village and its people that they’ve helped support for a long time.

It was beautifully shot and an impressive sympathetic depiction of religion.
