English Summary:

Francesco is a 1989 docu-drama relating in flashback St. Francis of Assisi's evolution from rich man's son to religious humanitarian and finally to full-fledged saint. The film was based on Hermann Hesse's Francis of Assisi, which director Liliana Cavani had previously filmed in 1966. It was shot in the Italian region of Abruzzo and it stars Mickey Rourke and Helena Bonham Carter. Greek composer, Vangelis, provided the musical score.

Raised as the pampered son of a merchant, Francis goes off to war, only to return with a profound horror for the society which generated such suffering. In one scene, as an act of renunciation, he strips himself of his fine clothing in front of his father, and leaves the house naked and barefoot, joining the lepers and beggars in the poor section of town. A series of episodes from Francis' life follows, rather than a coherent narrative, until his final days when he receives the stigmata, the wounds Christ suffered at the crucifixion.

 

Hungarian Summary:

Assisi Szent Ferencnek - minden idők egyik legnépszerűbb szentjének - misztikus és rendhagyó életét dolgozza fel a film. A XIII. századi Itália zűrzavara és vadsága közepette Francesco, a vagyonos kereskedő fia, otthagyja a gazdagságot és kényelmet, hogy osztozva a szegények nehéz sorsában, életét Istennek és mások megsegítésének szentelje. Példáját követve óriási tömegek hagyták ott régi életüket azért, hogy lelkiismeretükre hallgatva kövessék őt. Egy megalkuvásokat nem tűrő, fordulatos élet eseményeit beszéli el a film.

 

Italian Summary:

Francesco è un film del 1989 diretto da Liliana Cavani, la quale riprende a distanza di ventitré anni la storia già raccontata nel film televisivo Francesco d'Assisi (1966).

È stato presentato in concorso al 42º Festival di Cannes.

La vita di san Francesco viene ripercorsa dai ricordi di Chiara e alcuni dei suoi primissimi seguaci. Dalla giovinezza dissipata, alla prigionia in guerra, che l'ha portato a rinunciare ai beni terreni, perché dopo aver letto la bibbia tradotta capisce che la nostra vita va dedicata completamente a Dio, senza preoccuparci dei beni terreni ma solo di quelli spirituali, Francesco chiede al papa Innocenzo III di poter predicare la vita come vuole il vangelo (in povertà ma senza stare da soli).
