The monastery's abbot, Brother Christian, is as much versed in the Koran as in the Bible, giving him a special insight into, and respect for, the nation he has chosen to work in. But the country is increasingly in the grip of fundamentalist violence, and the brothers must soon decide whether to stay or leve. Loosely based on the 1996 Tibhirine mystery in which a group of French monks were murdered by either the Algerian military or an Islamic terrorist gang, this recent Cannes Grand Prix winner is set in the weeks before the crime took place. Provocative drama follows eight monks who have piously served the local community for years, but local extremists do not see it that way and insist they leave.
