      Steven D. Greydanus Decent Films How has this vibrant human firebrand, this unpredictable, leaping, shouting zealot, been transformed into the sheepish, subdued, self-deprecating cypher played by Rourke? Rated: F Dec 30, 2004 Full Review Read all reviews

      Audience Member I watched this film on curiosity after reading Kazantzakis' St. Francis, not Hesse. The sound and production are somewhat dated but the performance and message were surprisingly compelling. Rourke, perhaps cast oddly at the time, appears genuine and moving in this role. The same can be said for Helena Bonham Carter, who held a similar fascination. The script could have been developed further which is the only drawback. If you are seeking a moving drama on the life of Francis, this one is worthy and filled with reflective fascinations due to the cast and production. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/19/23 Full Review Audience Member divina simplemente, mickey rourke hace un francesco especial Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/23/23 Full Review S R I saw this because of the Archbishop's lost ages ago. I looked it up again since it was on the Vatican's 100 list. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 08/30/23 Full Review Audience Member The spirituality is replaced by the material view that has been improved in the common sense of life since the beginning of '80s... Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/16/23 Full Review Audience Member watched this in my Faith and Franciscanism class Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/01/23 Full Review Audience Member im not at all religious, but this movie put a massive impact on me..
