Loosely based on the life of the Cistercian monks of Tibéhirine in Algeria, from 1993 until their kidnapping in 1996, Of Gods And Men tells a story of eight French Christian monks who live in harmony with their Muslim brothers.
When a crew of foreign workers is massacred by an Islamic fundamentalist group, fear sweeps through the region. The army offers them protection, but the monks refuse. Should they leave? Despite the growing menace in their midst, they slowly realize that they have no choice but to stay... come what may. This movie features French audio with English subtitles. Widescreen. Rated PG-13. Approx. 123 minutes.

For that reason it will likely be quite a departure from white-bread North American Christianity. Yet the drama has to do with the choice these men are faced with when Islamic extremists begin to threaten the stability of the country, in this once French colony (the dialogue is in French, with English subtitles). In this wrestling with faith and calling, with loyalty to a way of life and the community they serve, we witness a very human struggle, powerfully conveyed through the understated acting and film-making. All in all a beautiful and poignant performance, and a good reminder that God's grace and call are larger than the narrow confines we so often impose upon Him.
