Audience Reviews for Brother Sun, Sister Moon (Fratello sole, sorella luna)

  • Jul 17, 2011
    Well meaning (hey, it's about a saint!) but ultimately deeply flawed telling of St.Francis done up as a 60's counterculture agent provacateur. Only missing, hey wait, it's here too, a Donovon soundtrack. Peace. love. flowers and God, man. And uber long, too. A great sleep aid.

    Stunning visual metaphors, more a poem than a biography, succeeding brilliantly in juxtaposing symbols of worldly riches with those of spiritual riches. Graham Faulkner is convincing with Alec Guinness superb.

    This is the MOST aesthetically beautiful movie I've EVER seen from the scenery shots to the actors -- Zeffierelli's FINEST -- Even better than Romeo and Juliet which came out immediately before this -- Alec Guiness turns in a WONDERFUL Pope and the other acting is stupendous -- The music was done by Donovan -- People my age will remember him from the 60's and 70's -- I just can't say enough good about this movie!
