French monks encounter unanticipated danger in this true drama, which fared well at last year's Cannes Film Festival and Cesar Awards (France's equivalent of the Oscars).
The religious men coexist well with their Algerian region's Muslims, but the arrival of insurgents sets the stage for a civil war - and for the monks to have to make difficult decisions on what to do next. Cast members include Lambert Wilson ("The Matrix Reloaded") and Michael Lonsdale ("Moonraker"). DVD extras: "making-of" documentary; interview with author John W. Kiser. *** (R: AS, P, V) (Also on Blu-ray)
