FRANCESCO GIULLARE DI DIO

(THE FLOWERS OF ST. FRANCIS)

Directed by : Roberto ROSSELLINI

Year of production : 1950 Country : ITALY Length : 87 minutes

Synopsis

“An essential clue is the title. Fools traditionally have the right to say awkward truths and go unpunished. The mood of the film is tuned between the devout and the comic, understanding both the material conditions as well as the strangest flights of the spirit. For Rossellini himself, this was an important opening into the cycle of biographies he delved into during the 1960s and the 1970s. One can only bemoan how much richer the history of cinema would be, if the often rigid and lifeless biopics of great men would be animated by even a drop of Rossellini’s wisdom. We face a rare experience, a captivating, wise, simple and multilayered film, one of those blessed works that not only renew our perception of the cinema, but also shake our worldview.” Peter von Bagh, TV3 Finland, 24.04.88
