Summary
"In a series of simple and joyous vignettes, director Roberto Rossellini and co-writer Federico Fellini lovingly convey the universal teachings of The People's Saint: humility, faith, and sacrifice. Gorgeously photographed to evoke the medieval paintings of Saint Francis' time, and cast with monks from the Nocera Inferiore Monastery"--Container
