Director: Xavier Beauvois
Cast: Lambert Wilson, Michael Lonsdale and Olivier Rabourdin
Eight French Christian monks live in harmony with their Muslim brothers in a monastery perched in the mountains of North Africa in the 1990s. When a crew of foreign workers is massacred by an Islamic fundamentalist group, fear sweeps though 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.
This outstanding film from director Xavier Beauvois is inspired by real events. Beauvois establishes the routine day-to-day life of these dedicated men with stark simplicity so that we come to know and like them. The film premiered at the 2010 Cannes Film Festival where it won the Grand Prix. It became a big critical and commercial success in its domestic market and won both the Lumière Award and César Award for Best Film.
Of Gods and Men is a very different, serene, contemplative film and a sad reminder of the results of fundamentalism.
