Of Gods and Men
Of Gods and Men | Des Hommes et des DieuxDir: Xavier Beauvois
Based on a true story – the kidnapping and murder of seven French monks in Algeria in 1996 – Xavier Beauvois’s OF GODS AND MEN is a revelation. At once a timely and intelligent rumination on some key contemporary questions – fundamentalist terrorism and the relationship between Christianity and Islam – it is also a masterly piece of cinema, a beautifully acted, scripted and photographed work.
