In 1996, in Algeria, eight French monks of The Monastery Notre-Dame de l'Atlas of Tibhirine have a simple life serving the poor community that was raised around the monastery. During the Algerian Civil War, they are threatened by terrorists but they decide to stay in the country and not return to France. One night, the extremists break in the monastery and abduct seven monks. A couple of months later, they are found dead in controversial circumstances.

A powerful, touching and luminous chef d'Oeuvre.
14 April 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Des Hommes Et Des Dieux is a poignant movie about a part of our society. Unfairly knocked out of the Oscar short list representing Algeria by considerably mediocre ''Hors La Loi'', this movie is a powerhouse. What is really entertaining and amusing in a bunch of elderly people talking about society and morals? Xavier Beauvois is compelling and imposing, we believe in every single character, we believe in their honestly, their humanism. By being a so-called teenage/adult myself i really enjoyed this movie. The humanity and the authenticity of Beauvois's tale is breathtaking, the actor lead and supporting are true and brutally honest in their performance. This is the kind of movie that will spice up conversation around the world; this movie should have gotten nominated in the Oscar's because it is my favourite foreign movie this year so far. Thumbs Up to Xavier Beauvois, the actors and the humanity of this epic story.
