    One of the Best Movies I have seen in the last few years. I consider this Movie a \"Must See\" for everyone. A small, poor, peaceful village where a Monestary and the muslim population have coexisted for centuries. Where the Monks are part of the villages\'s life, and meaning. Where they have friends amoung the Imans, and people: Being invited to parties, and dinners; the monks taking care of the village\'s sick and infirm. Only to be broken by a Radical Muslim Group, and the Unforgiving and Ruthless Army that is fighting the Radical Muslims. The Monks, and village are caught between these two powers, and their war. The Strength the Monks show, helps the people of the town, who fear the Radical Muslim Group, and the Army. As I said,\"This is a Must See for everyone.\"

    It was a very moving drama contrasting war and peace. The story line provides a splendid explanation of the incarnation of Jesus and what that means to his followers.
