5.0 out of 5 stars A visual sermon, 19 Jan. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Of Gods And Men [DVD] [2010] (DVD)
I saw this film at the local film theatre. The spiritual journey of the community, from disagreement to unity of purpose, was stunning. The portrayal of their life, both together and within the local Moslem community,was gently unfolded. The sheer love between all concerned was vividly portrayed - and their love of God. It felt like a documentary rather than a drama with actors. It made me want to pray! The final chapter meeting to decide whether to stay or go revealed a depth of love and trust - in both God and each other - was a real revelation. The 'Last Supper' scene was so beautiful and the final scene was more to do with the heavenly journey than earthly death. I would be interested to hear what an atheist made of it. One last comment, as with so many none British/American films, it made me aware of how noisy 'commercial' films are. Watch it at night with everything else switched off - and no breaks for anythhing.

I'm sure an atheist would find it a very moving film just as you did.
