The Amish: Not to Be Modern Go beyond the reality-show hype and experience the life of the real Amish. Shot over the four seasons, this gorgeous film offers viewers a rare glimpse inside a community that spurns electricity, cars, computers, cell phones and TV and still manages to thrive. From the secret caves in Switzerland where the first Amish prayed to a softball game between Amish schoolgirls, you'll be captivated by the true story of the timeless Amish lifestyle, told in their own words and featuring authentic Amish music. Beautifully filmed and sensitive... an extraordinary achievement. The Chicago Tribune.
