Silent Night DVD

It's time for another movie roundup.  First up from Covenant Communications is Silent Night.

About -  In 1818, when Joseph Mohr is assigned to be the new assistant priest in Oberndorf, a small Austrian town near Salzburg, the young man is full of ideas and ideals. His passion to bring the church closer to the common people sets him on a collision course with his new superior, Father Nöstler. When Mohr organizes a church choir that includes out casts from the local tavern and performs in German instead of Latin, Nöstler threatens him with disciplinary action. Their relationship further deteriorates when Maria, a regular tavern patron, surprisingly joins the performance of the all-male church choir. As Mohr’s initial successes start to crumble and his efforts back fire on him, he loses all hope and faces a trial of faith. The night before Christmas, Mohr has to decide if he will accept defeat and leave Oberndorf or embrace the true significance of the Holy Night. Beautifully filmed on location in Austria, this powerful story was inspired by the true events leading to the creation of the most popular Christmas carol of all time —“Silent Night.”

If you love Christmas music, this is a great film.  The music is very pretty and it was interesting to see the inspiration behind Silent Night.

To Buy - Silent Night retails for $17.99 and can be purchased online at Deseret Book and other christian book stores.
