Saturday Song

Today I am a movie trailer instead of a song. All week long I was obsessed with posting a particular scene from this film, which is set to the music from Swan Lake, but alas, I could not find that clip!

The movie is Of Gods and Men. This movie is, hands down, one of the best movies that I have ever seen. Based on the book, The Monks of Tibhirine, it is the story of a group of French Trappists who are living in Algeria. The story unfolds under the backdrop of Algerian unrest, an early chapter of Islamic extremism during the 90’s. This is all based on a true story.

So the book and the movie are both highly recommended.
