Of Gods and Men

One of the most celebrated ‘Catholic’ films of the decade is new on DVD . . .

Of Gods and Men
Starring Lambert Wilson, Michael Lonsdale
New on DVD Rated PG-13, 122 min.

This highly acclaimed French film tells the true story of an Algerian monastery where nine Trappist monks lived in harmony with the largely Muslim population, until seven of them were kidnapped and assassinated in 1996 during the Algerian Civil War.

The film focuses on the preceding chain of events in decay of government, expansion of terrorism and the monks’ confrontation with both the terrorists and the government authorities that led to their deaths. In 2010, the film won the Grand Prix at Canne.
