The Sword, DVD
You don't want to miss this movie.
The year is 730 AD. In southern Gaul, teenage Garron has been charged with protecting his people while his father is off at war against an invading army. He soon finds an enemy at his doorstep and faces some very difficult decisions to fulfill his charge. The strength of The Sword is its heart. At the core of this story is Garron's struggle to remain faithful to his family and to his God even when circumstances leave no obvious way to do so.
There were no film industry professionals involved in this production. That's something you'll recognize but it really only adds to the film's charm. Even so, the production is high quality. The Sword boasts some memorable imagery, clever twists, and a strong original score. This is wholesome, encouraging, and heartfelt storytelling-- the kind that strikes a chord with anyone.

Wonderful family film
Generations challenged to pass down their faith are the focus of this family-friendly feature. After watching this film made by a small independent group of homeschoolers, I am amazed to think about the thread of faith that brought the knowledge of Christ from the days of the cross to the present. Though the costumes, customs, and surroundings change, each generation is called to defend home, family, and faith... you will find yourself asking, "How do I measure up to this task that every Christian is called to?" Take up your sword!
