Movie Reviews

Not a film--a docudrama
Stephen E. Evans | raleigh, nc United States | 05/07/2007
(3 out of 5 stars)

"I was expecting a biographical film like Brother Sun, Sister Moon. I had read Spoto's book and loved it. However, this is really a documentary, with only brief re-enactments of Francis's life. The bulk of the 60 minute content is clips from interviews with "experts in the field". So this is useful, but not what I would have purchased, if I had understood this before. Not a film--a short docudrama."
Poor
M. DiRaimondo | 08/02/2008
(1 out of 5 stars)

"This film/ documentary did nothing for me, and was a bland and at times inaccurate portrayal of one of the world's Most Loved historical figures. Although I have done a large amount of reading and research on Saint Francis, I can honestly say that you can find out more about his life from "googling" him and reading two random web-pages. It is hard to imagine in 60 minutes any less could be said about St. Francis. Moreover, some of the information was completely false. In my opinion, and this is only my opinion, this film in no way illustrates the Life of a man who merged with God and became a Living Prayer himself. In others words, spend your money else where."
