Soft-focus spiritual gunk.
March 11, 2015
A pretentious bore.

March 11, 2015
Zeffirelli's work looks like a Sunday-school coloring book: everything is glowingly photogenic, including poverty, and leprosy.
March 11, 2015
Extraordinarily, Zeffirelli has made a beautiful and simple film.
August 21, 2012
In Zeffirelli's visually beautiful tale, the hero is perceived as a prototype hippie, and so the music is by Donovan.

March 26, 2009
Franco Zeffirelli has utilized a style of simple elegance, befitting both the period and the subject.
November 1, 2008
Way overwrought Zeffirelli work, pretty much lost since its debut in 1973.

The most serious problem with this film is its softness, that sentimentality Zeffirelli is often accused of.

Avoid at all costs.
May 9, 2005
Zeffirelli has made a big, absurd doodad, a movie that confuses simplicity with simple-mindedness and that makes saintliness look like an extreme form of Asian flu.
November 11, 2004
With its brilliant cinematography by Ennio Guarnieri and cast of pretty faces, the film is like a painting come to life.
October 23, 2004
Brother Sun, Sister Moon is a big, limp Valentine of a movie, filled with an excess of sweetness and light. What a shame.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
March 17, 2004
It's hard to imagine the pair actually fell in love to the strains of 70s songwriting icon Donovan.
March 17, 2004
It is one of the most beautiful films I have ever seen. Just about any frame of the film, blown up, could make a beautiful poster for the film.
February 6, 2003
beautiful and nicely framed photography from northern Italy...not enough to overcome an inane script, inept acting, and Donovan's syrupy music
Full Review | Original Score: D
