Like Rome, Open City and Paisà, this was co-written by Federico Fellini. Inspired by the Little Flowers of St Francis, it's the story of Francis of Assisi and his acolytes, the first Franciscans. They're a motley crew - simple, humble, joyful - quite prepared to give away anything they have (even their cassocks!) if it is required. Rossellini's film shares their qualities. How you react to it probably depends on your own state of grace... or your sense of humour.
