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. But his passion to bring the church closer to the common people sets him on a collison course with his new superior Father Noestler. As Mohr’s initial successes start to crumble and his efforts backfire 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.

One thought to “Silent Night (2012)”
This was a really great movie about the true story of Joseph Mohr and Franz Gruber and the origin of the hymn Silent Night. I recommend this movie for any family who wants to be inspired and uplifted by the story of one man whose testimony of the Birth of Christ has endured for generations through a popular Christmas Carol.
