St Francis on Film

If you've never seen it, check out Brother Sun Sister Moon (Fratello sole, sorella luna), Franco Zeffirelli's bio pic of St. Francis of Assisi. Very much of its time, it even features songs by Donovan. Zeffirelli made this film right after his much acclaimed breakthrough adaptation of Romeo & Juliet and just before taking on the life of Christ in the brilliant Jesus of Nazareth. (Of note, in 1990, Zeffirelli also directed future Christ filmmaker Mel Gibson in the title role of Hamlet.)
