Brother Sun, Sister Moon

Movie Review:
Genre: Biography, Drama, History
Runtime: 135 min
Release Date: 1972

Screenplay co-written and directed by Franco Zeffirelli (Romeo And Juliet; Jesus of Nazareth) not long after he became a born-again Christian. Brother Sun, Sister Moon is an uncommonly rewarding and meaningful film experience. A real blessing, causing the viewer to examine the depth and commitment of his own walk with Christ. Zefirelli's cinematography is brilliantly beautiful throughout. The film focuses on the early years of Francis of Assisi, who renounced his family's riches and past worldly life to follow Christ in sincerity and humility, unencumbered by material possessions.
"For Brother Sun who gives us warmth; to Thee, O Lord we give thanks...for Sister Moon who lights our night; to Thee, O Lord we give thanks."
-St. Francis of Assisi
