I am so thankful I saw this movie...  Dec 10, 2006
This movie was far more than I expected. It is very well produced in every way. I'm still amazed that I hadn't heard of it until recently and only came across it when browsing a printed catalog. But the reason I'm submitting a review is to say that this production is truly impactful. It has penetrated my heart and thoughts and affected my actions. I truly believe that this movie was orchestrated by the Father Himself for those on the narrow path and those looking for the straight way.
Persecution of Ex-Muslim for Christ's Sake...  Nov 18, 2006
"Behind the sun" is where Samir's family threatens to send him if he doesn't renounce Christianity. Samir has a career and a girlfriend in the US, but has traveled back to the Middle East to visit his family and share with them the good news of Jesus. Things don't go as exactly planned, and the movie recounts the persecution not just of Samir, but of the local underground church comprised of Christians from an Islamic background. It's significant that the film distinguished between the above-ground, tolerated church comprised of historically Christian Arabs sort of "grandfathered into" Christianity and so tolerated, versus the underground church consisting of converts from Islam.

Though BEHIND THE SUN is a rather simple story, I'm rating it highly because of its importance as a reminder to not forget our suffering brothers, plus the story, uncomplicated though it is, is of high quality in presentation. Also, all Christians should be able to relate to the protagonist's experience on some level, anyway, since the Bible promises persecution to all who live godly in Christ Jesus. 4.5 stars
Story of a Young Muslim Who Converts to Christianity  Sep 22, 2006
In this movie, a Muslim, Samir, from an unnamed Islamic country attends university in Chicago. While there, he come into contact with some Christian students, and from the testimony of their life, he converts to Christianity. When he returns to his country, he has to face all the Islamic consequences for Muslims who become Christians (or any other religion). Samir's father, rather than kill him, disowns him; however, his uncles are out to kidnap him for forced 'reconversion' to Islam; if he then refuses, the plan to kill him.

At the same time, a Christian pastor in his country is imprisoned and it is a foregone conclusion that his trial will result in his martyrdom. Other Christians in the country, through smuggling means with a Frenchman, are bringing Bibles and taking developments of the pastor's situation out for news sources in the West. Samir, with no place to stay and no money finds the secret Christian group, and after a period of mistrust of him (thinking he is a secret police spy), let him join the group. With his life in grave danger, Samir also sees the great need of the Christians in his country, so, when it comes time for him to return to Chicago, he has a difficult decision to make.

This movie may be distributed by the Christiano Film Group, but it is produced by Open Doors, International, and is far, far above the quality of the Christiano produced movies. Not only is it a much more professional quality, it doesn't beat you over the head with "Christianity" like the Christiano movies do. In this movie, the drama is paramount; it lets the Christian message come through simply by the example of the lives of the Christian characters. Indeed, it also shows a Muslim cousin of Samir risking his life to help his cousin.

If you are looking for a movie that will cause you to tense up from the danger to the main character, one that shows the risks of Christians in an Islamic country, and one that subtly gets its Christian message across without offending, then you will really like this movie. In my opinion, this movie is as good or better than the best of the Billy Graham organization's movies.
