 Our Description

Filmed on location in Assisi and other Italian locations where Saint Francis lived, this two-part film tells the story of the beloved saint from childhood through death.  Raoul Bova (Under the Tuscan Sun) stars as Francis, with outstanding performances from supporting actors such as Mariano Rigillo (Il Postino) as Francis' stern father, Amelie Daure as Clare, and Tony Bertorelli (The Passion of the Christ) as Pope Innocent III.  Captured by the enemy as a soldier and imprisoned, Francis has a life changing experience that inspires him to later abandon his riches and dedicate his life to the Gospel in simplicity, poverty and charity towards all.

He pointed out that his army of bloggers is hired to post honest reviews, not marketing copy. Well I hate posting bad reviews, but I've got my orders, so here goes:

First of all, you should know that the film is really very beautiful. Lovely medieval sets, sweeping vistas of Italian countryside, fun being had in the costuming department. I am not qualified to give you a historical-accuracy rating on tho Full Review...
