||Great, great movie|
Brother Sun, Sister Moon review This movie follows the general outline of the first part of GK Chesterton's St Francis biography. The acting is superb. The cinematography is gorgeous and sets are beautifully realistic. I highly recommend this movie not only all Catholics but to anyone interested in St Francis in any way. Or of the founding of the order of the Franciscan 1st and 2nd orders. Or in the time period of his life. Get this movie and watch it!

"Brother Sun, Sister Moon" is more than just a movie---it is an inspiration. Yes, it has filming and historical flaws but that is minute compared to the experience it gives you. Its message has truly worked itself into my life---something very few films (or anything) can do. One has to see it, experience it, (and have the kind of mind appreciate it) to know what I am talking about. A must see for all aspiring seekers of Truth.

||Francis of Assisi brought to life|
Brother Sun, Sister Moon DVD for sale A decent try by Franco Zeffirelli on a difficult assignment, bringing the life of St. Francis of Assisi to the big screen. After all, the power, vision, and motivations of Great Souls like Francis are not easily understood. To say that it takes a saint to understand a saint is no doubt true. Did this film succeed in showing the spiritual power and superhuman faith of this great man? No. Is the film worth seeing anyway? Yes, but as an entertainment only. As to motivation and spiritual power, well, that'll have to be a story for another day. I rate this 4 stars because, hey, it's still better (and much more innocently appealing) as most of the stuff out there.
