Storyline

A divided village is what country priest Joseph Mohr finds when he arrives at his new parish: a village cut in half by a river that forms a political and more importantly, a social border. Both sides are engaged in a bitter struggle, with the wealthy merchants on the one side trying to break the monopoly of the poor bargemen on the other. Braced by his strong sense of justice, Mohr fights for the rights of the impoverished bargemen. To give them a little comfort and warmth in their darkest moments, he and his friend Franz Xaver Gruber, the schoolteacher in the village, create a song that has become synonymous with Christmas all over the world: "Silent Night, Holy Night" Written by Anonymous

Goofs

Joseph Mohr wrote the poem of "Stille Nacht, heilige Nacht" (english: "Silent Night") already in the year 1816, before he went to Oberndorf. Franz Xaver Gruber just added the sound to this poem. The movie clearly shows Joseph Mohr writing the text inspired by a recent experience he had just before Christmas. See more »

Two thumbs up
23 December 2001 | by (Sydney) – See all my reviews

This is the best Christmas movie I've seen in a long time. No Hollywood mush about Santa and gifts and Christmas spirit. Just plain caring and faith in religion. Amazing performances by just about everyone. Also, the scenery is quite breathtaking.
