Brother Sun, Sister Moon


Film Description:

Francesco’s (Graham Faulkner) father wants him to join the family trade, but he has a higher calling in mind. His friend Claire (Judy Bowker) is sympathetic to his desire to serve God, so the two start their own church and gain a following, much to the dismay of the local bishop. Seeking approval, Francesco walks barefoot to the Vatican to meet with the Pope (Alec Guinness). Franco Zeffirelli directs the story of St. Francis of Assisi.

    It was a hit in the 70s with a name like Zefirelli pulling in his crowd (previous: ROMEO AND JULIET). His clan looked like the flower people of Woodstock or (gulp) Manson’s Tajunga compound.

    Keep in mind that Islamic armies were making their way here and there. It may look stodgy and off-beat, but at least someone was standing up to the battle plan of Islam. Meaning that this film was the first of many to be written that would cause us in the West to warm up to Islam, because the “warmongering” of the Christian West was so “despicable.” A lot to think about.

    As I recall Assisi did get to preach to a Muslim leader at one point; he was near-death and confused and decided to be a Christian to ‘cover all the bases.’ His ‘tribe’ did not.
