5.0 out of 5 stars PAX ET BONUM December 7, 2004
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This film on the life of one of the Church's greatest Saints was never given the proper credit it deserved. Bradford Dillman shines as the merchant turned Saint. You can feel his spiritual upheaval as he leaves all things to follow Christ.Dolores Hart as Clare,shortly after playing this role ,left Hollywood to become a cloistered nun.Watching her undergo Clare's conversion ,one can sense the actresses own struggle to follow in the footsteps of Francis. The story this film tells demands
the widescreen process.Lots of spiritual awakening in this great film.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Forgotten Classic May 7, 2005
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This film changed my life. I will go on record to say that it is because of this movie that I am a Catholic Christian today. While not 100% historically accurate, it is still a much better film than Brother Sun, Sister Moon. You see all aspects of the saint here - his love for nature, his peacemaking, his desire for martyrdom, the betrayal of some of his Friars Minor, but most of all - we see the love for God and Jesus Christ that moved a man to change his world and continue to bring people to Christ today.

Dolores Hart, who played Saint Claire, eventually became a Franciscan Nun after making this film.

5.0 out of 5 stars True to the peaceful spirit of Saint Francis. March 28, 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed this movie and highly recommend it for viewing and keeping. Though it is a simple movie by today's standards, it is very engaging and inspiring. Bradford Dillman (Francis) delivers a great performance, very believable. I liked that the movie leaves room for the imagination and for interpretation, ie. it does not take us into the saint's head and show us his deepest thoughts etc. which I find inappropriate in some other movies about saints whose thoughts were not reported/documented.

5.0 out of 5 stars As Inspiring As Ever January 30, 2006
Format:DVD
I first saw this movie when I was about 8 or 9 years old. As a Catholic, I was about to be Confirmed, and needed a name. I knew a bit of the story of Francis of Assisi, but seeing this movie really touched me, and I decided to use Francis as my Confirmation name. I recently purchased this DVD, and I found that, at 51, the motion picture is still powerful. I am filled with pride and touched in spirit every time I watch it. Watch this with an open mind, and your heart will open as well.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not a well made or accurate movie July 29, 2007
Format:DVD
If you are an orthodox Catholic or any Catholic for that matter, this is not the right movie for you. First of all, there are many better classical movies about saints out there, such as "The Reluctant Saint," "Quo Vadis," "Marcelino," and several others. This movie is not a good movie in general. The word that comes to mind is flaky. It is very inaccurate, it shows a Saint Francis who was willing to defy the Pope if his rule was not approved (which is completely false for a humble saint such as St. Francis). It shows Christian Crusaders butchering Muslims and Muslims that treat St. Francis with great kindness. It shows St. Francis as a priest, which he wasn't (because of his humility St. Francis refused ordination to the priesthood, remaining a deacon all his life). And this is just some of the blatant errors the movie makes. A poorly made movie not worth owning.

5.0 out of 5 stars It is a great movie about a great Saint. January 3, 2006
Format:DVD
I am catholic, and I read a lot about Saint Fraincis of Assisi. This movie is the closest to the history. This movie is really great, it showed Saint Francis life in detail before and after his call. It showed his love of all God's creatures, and how he loved his enemies. He was called for peace and love, and he did all it takes to show his love to everyone. He did what he was preaching for. I recommend that movie to any catholic or non catholic. Saint Francis is a great.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Saint For All Times May 25, 2006
Format:DVD
A trully great and inspirational movie that trancsends most every culture and time. It is best know that the actress who played the character of St. Clare, Francis' great friend and admirer, was Dolores Hart who herself became a real life nun!

St. Francis of Assisi, pray for us during our most tumultous time of Wars, and Violences and beg God to Bring us Peace to our Lands.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Good Movie March 18, 2006
Format:DVD
All the lives of the Saints are great, which is what makes it difficult to rate movies of their lives. You would think that the movie would naturally deserve five stars, but that isn't always the case. In rating a movie on the life of a Saint, what is really being rated is the presentation of their life. This presentation of the life of St. Francis of Assisi is deserving of five stars because it shows the viewer how St. Francis embodied true conversion, faith, hope, and love. Despite this, however, I do have this criticism: the heart of St. Francis' spiritual life was the Eucharistic Sacrifice of the Mass. Shockingly, however, the movie does not portray this at all! This criticism also applies to the recent movie on the life of St. Anthony of Padua, which I would likewise give five stars. These two saints wold sometimes live only off of the "food which endures to eternal life" (Jn 6:27)! Yet one wold not at all get this from the movies. This is a major disappointment. Nevertheless, though, the movie still deserves five stars, for without the gifts of repentance, faith, hope, and love, the Eucharist would be received in vain.

I enjoyed watching this movie. It really leaves a lot out of his story, but for preteens and teens it is probably enough for them to see in one setting.
