The life of St. Francis of Assisi (1181-1226) as related by followers who gather after his death to tell stories so that Leone can record them: a privileged and virile youth, a prisoner of war, an heir who turns away from his father and gives all to the poor, a beggar for others, and an inspiration to friends who accept the Gospels' life of poverty. He seeks the Pope's blessing, and he endures persecution at the hands of the family of Chiara Offreduccio (1194-1253), who becomes St. Clare. Many join the order he has established and then rebel at his expectations. In near despair - and ill - he writes a Rule to take to the Pope; then, the Lord sends him a message. He dies smiling.

Olivia K (ru) wrote: The excruciating detail and time-commitment clearly involved with this film truly deserves a standing ovation. Christiane Cegavske basically made this entire film single-handedly - and for 10 years at that.The dolls and miniature sets are amazing and the opening/ending sequences are beautiful in their own perfectly flawed ways.A technique used repeatedly in this film is one of my favorites - cellophane water.Beware of the Spider Lady.

However, because of the phenominal acting the movie became so believable. It makes you feel like you are watching the events unfold in real life before your very eyes. It is uplifting, but at the same time does not leave you with false hope.

Luis Henrique M (ru) wrote: This movie has caught my attention on how cinema is not only entertainment, but also a very effective communication medium. It has fantasy, very good acting from the main characters Trent and Devon to the supporting, allegorical cast and plenty of social critique and metaphors - you'll want to see this more than once as it will always bring something new, some little detail that you missed before. Devon is like an angel bringing conscience for Trent, helping him 'grow up' in a very nice reversal on the coming of age ritual.

Throw in Jeffery Combs, Barbra Crampton, with Stuart Gordon pulling the strings and you have yourself another wicked fun horror flick. My third favorite Gordon film (right behind Re-Animator and From Beyond) that is worth your time more than once. P.S. Make sure you only watch the unrated version.

There follow confusing but sinister doings in a gloomy mansion and a private sanatorium, with every plot twist a parody of thriller cliches. What are the villains really after? Can Ronnie beat a framed murder rap?
