The Flowers Of St. Francis: The Criterion Collection DVD
SKU ID #314230
A serene view of the life of a monk in search of spiritual enlightenment. Famed Italian director Roberto Rossellini and co-writer Federico Fellini convey the universal teachings of St. Francis in a loving series of parables. Rossellini shot "The Flowers of St. Francis" (1950) in a starkly neorealist style, using real Francescan monks from the Nocere Inferiore monastery to play the roles of St. Francis and his disciples.
