Mickey Rouke stars with Helena Bonham Carter in this exquisitely produced story of the passionately mystical life of Saint Francis of Assisi.

Amid the tumult and savagery of 13th century Italy, Francesco, the decadent son of a wealthy merchant, experiences a stunning religious awakening, renounces his life of debauchery and begins an all-consuming quest for spiritual purity. Selflessly ministering to the poor, he attracted many of his high society friends to his order of monks and set an example of fervent devotion and life affirming sacrifice that endures to this day.
