A group of peaceful Trappist monks stationed in an impoverished Algerian community must decide whether to leave or stay when overrun by fundamentalist terrorists. This surprise Grand Prize winner at the Cannes Film Festival balances timely political commentary with a languorous observational eye. Mostly, though, its about the nobility of standing one's ground while quietly suffering a lot of internal conflict. In theory, it's dramatic stuff--but in practice, it's a bit boring. In French and Arabic with English subtitles. 122 minutes R.
