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

Oberndorf, a small Austrian town near Salzburg, the young man is full of

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

faces a trial of faith. The night before Christmas, Mohr has to decide

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
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.
