Flowers of St. Francis (1950)

Links

Overview

Brief glimpses into the life and spirit of St. Francis of Assisi and the first Franciscans.

Review

Very good and inspiring. Can’t attest to literal accuracy, but seems to capture the spirit of the Saint.

Caveats

Much of it is not appropriate for younger kids:

  • Juniper is beaten and almost executed
  • A pig is dismembered

Also:

  • It’s only in Italian with subtitles
