French drama based on the 1996 kidnapping and killing of seven monks in Algeria. A group of Trappist monks reside in the monastery of Tibhirine in Algeria, where they live in harmony with the largely muslim population. When a bloody conflict between Algeria's army and Muslim Jihadi insurgents disrupts the peace, they are forced to consider fleeing the monastery and deserting the villagers they have ministered to. In the face of deadly violence the monks wrestle with their faith and their convictions, eventually deciding to stay and help their neighbours keep the army and the insurgents at bay.
Under threat by fundamentalist terrorists, a group of Trappist monks stationed with an impoverished Algerian community must decide whether to leave or stay. . You can read more in Google, Youtube, Wiki

Long L (gb) wrote: The movie tries too hard to be artistic and loses a lot in plot. It's very pretentious, slow, and boring. Just because it's foreign film about "love" does not mean it's sophisticated. Do not waste your time on this one.

Zack B (us) wrote: This is a delightful little horror flick from way back. I wanted to see it for two reasons: One, Martin Scorsese cited it as one of many films that inspired the general tone and look of Shutter Island. Two, Jacques Tourneur, director of film noir masterpiece Out of the Past, was a director I wanted to explore more. I was not disappointed. The black-and-white cinematography itself is worth the watch. It's absolutely glorious.
