Feature focuses on the early years of Francis of Assisi, who sought communion with the natural world by renouncing his family's riches to seek his own destiny unencumbered by material possessions. Francis was, in a sense, history's first "drop-out": he left a life of comfort to seek a spiritual union with the world. 'Brother Sun, Sister Moon' is an uncommonly rewarding and meaningful film experience.

Feeble, annoying, sentimental flower power era account of the life of St Francis of Assisi demonstrating just how difficult it is to make a drama out of peace and love. Zeffirelli was much more successful when tackling discord in his earlier, masterful interpretation of Romeo and Juliet which, admittedly, had a better script.
