The Flowers Of St. Francis (Francesco Giullare Di Dio) (1950)
Roberto Rossellini's neo-realist drama, co-scripted by Rossellini and Federico Fellini, recounts the life of St. Francis of Assisi. The director's trademark natural style is well served by a non-professional cast that includes monks from Italy's Nocere Inferiore monastery. AKA: "Francis, God's Jester." 87 min. Standard; Soundtrack: Italian Dolby Digital mono; Subtitles: English; interviews. In Italian with English subtitles.
