Brother Sun, Sister Moon. has been added to your Cart. Filmmaker Franco Zeffirelli (Endless Love) makes a decorous effort at communicating the ideals of Francis and even tweaking the character toward flower-power relevance.

Brother Sun, Sister Moon. But the result is feel-good fluff, a boring movie that doesn't penetrate its subject as much as reinvent him toward a modern bias. Graham Faulkner is entirely forgettable in the lead and Donovan's songs on this project aren't exactly first-rate, either.

Brother Sun Sister Moon . . Yes, it was influenced by the time in which it was made, as are all films (and books, for that matter)

Franco Zeffirelli has utilized a style of simple elegance . Brother Sun, Sister Moon is a big, limp Valentine of a movie, filled with an excess of sweetness and light.

Franco Zeffirelli has utilized a style of simple elegance, befitting both the period and the subject. Well meaning (hey, it's about a saint!) but ultimately deeply flawed telling of S. rancis done up as a 60's counterculture agent provacateur.

I haven't seen the version from the 90s or 2000s yet, but this film is a gem which should never be overlooked. It was seminal for me, in my early 20s, to show me what a life of holiness looks like. Raised Southern Baptist, I had few--if any--examples.

Zeffirelli's version of this great man depicts a 70's genre of his early life from his return from the Padua Wars till he was received and recognized by Pope Innocent III. The film is visually well done but should have been in Technicolor to enhance effectiveness. It appears to have been filmed on location in Umbria with scenes in the town of Assisi. Graham Faulkner and Jodi Bowker are very believable as St Francis and St Clair. Compassion erupts from both of them on the screen. All this is entwined in the music by Donovan which provides powerful scenes to capture the period and surroundings.

Although Francis of Assisi was a very humble man, I think he would be pleased at the depiction of him in this film.

The movie shows the hardships and the unusual dedication of Francis, along with the control of the reigning clergy, and as such is quite a potent film. Unfortunately, I neglected to see that it was advertised as a European based DVD so could only play it on my computer. Thus I caution prospective buyers to be sure to see if it plays in Region 1.

I came of age in the period when this movie was made, like your reviewer, 'gloriana'. However, I didn't see Christ in greasepaint but rather through the more traditional teachings of the church. I remember seeing this movie in high school with friends. It opened our eyes to a different way of looking at the church, and at our own religions. It was a major factor in my exploration of beliefs other than my own Protestantism, ending in a primary study in Zen. I make no pretense at being any type of theological scholar.
The movie itself never pretended to be a strictly biographical study of Francis. It was intended to communicate the love and spirit of charity that he practiced. It was not meant to be a reference for theologians. It is an introduction into a different way of believing.
Yes, it was influenced by the time in which it was made, as are all films (and books, for that matter). The dreamy nature of the film fits perfectly with the peace/love/dove generation. However, this same characteristic lends a charm to the material that couldn't be duplicated today. Several children I know have seen this film on VHS, and were captivated by its simple premise. The cinematography was flawless.
Leave your cynicism at home and enjoy the film for what it was, and is. If you want a strict documentary of St. Francis, look elsewhere. Enjoy the beauty and simplicity that is here waiting for you.
Hopefully, this film will come out on DVD soon.
Great to see again after 30 plus years!
