The powerful true story behind the most popular Christmas carol of all time.
The powerful true story behind the most popular Christmas carol of all time. 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 superior, Father Noestler. When Mohr organizes a church choir that includes outcasts from the local tavern and performs in German instead of Latin, Noestler threatens him with disciplinary action. 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.

Silent Night was received with some skepticism by us, with its slow beginning. Once Act 1 closed, though, character development and pacing quickly improved; making this a highly enjoyable film. Everyone remembers Franz Gruber and Joseph Mohr (the protagonists), but virtually no one remembers the antagonist, Father Nostler (Father Mohr's superior/supervisor). Enjoy!

EXCELLENT!!!!! We were skeptical at first but the movie turned out better than we thought! HDTV quality, very good acting and great storyline! Kept our attention the entire time and the entire movie was filmed primarily in Austria and some parts Germany!

Great insight into the making of a wonderful hymn. Actors give a solid portrayal of characters. The quality of film and locations are good too. Would have been better had John Mohr and Franz Gruber been more developed as a historical background but perhaps little information is available. All in all however a rich movie for the entire family.
