      Comments: From the Vatican's Best Films List


      From US Catholic Bishops - Office of Film and Broadcasting:
      The Flowers of St. Francis (1950) Remarkable Italian production about the
      beginnings of the Franciscan Order as its founder sets the example of humility,
      simplicity and obedience for his first followers at Portiuncula, a little
      chapel near Assisi, from which they depart into the world to preach peace. Directed
      by Roberto Rossellini from a script co-written with Federico Fellini, the
      movie's form is as simple and sincere as the subject of the narrative which
      relates a series of little incidents realistically, yet with an infectious sense of
      joy marvellously conveyed by an anonymous cast of monks from a Roman
      monastery. Subtitles. The U.S. Catholic Conference classification is A-I -- general
      patronage. Not rated by the Motion Picture Association of America. (Facets
      Multimedia, $34.95)
