In a series of simple and joyous vignettes, director Roberto Rosselini and co-writer Federico Fellini lovingly convey the universal teachings—of humility, compassion, and sacrifice—of the People’s Saint. Shot in a neo-realist manner, with monks from the Nocere Inferiore monastery playing the roles of St. Francis and his disciples, The Flowers of St. Francis is a timeless and moving portrait of the search for spiritual enlightenment.

"It's the Catholic DVD event of the year: Vatican film list honoree The Flowers of St. Francis, Roberto Rosselini's beautiful tribute to Franciscan spirituality and the best film ever made about St. Francis. And it's the original, unadulterated Italian version, complete with chapter-like intertitles. It's has a US-edition prologue, and other bonus materials."
