      Caio B Great depiction of Saint Francis life. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/05/24 Full Review Ashley H Francis of Assisi is a decent film. It is about the son of an Assisi merchant who renounces a promising army career in favor of a monastic life. Bradford Dillion and Dolores Hart give good performances. The script is a little slow in places. Michael Curtiz did an alright job directing this movie. I liked this motion picture because of the drama and history. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 08/27/23 Full Review Audience Member It was a nice story overall, but not terribly exciting to watch Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/13/23 Full Review Read all reviews
