reality and spirituality.,
This review is from: Francesco Giullare di Dio - Masters of Cinema series [DVD] (DVD)
Francesco, Giullare Di Dio is a wonderful film. Apart from being a cinematic masterpiece, it is also speaks volumes about love, humanity and spirituality. Some films dealing with what might be called the transcendent tend to be a bit abstract and heavy at times. Not this one. This one is firmly rooted in the here and now, in nature, in the open air, in life, in the everyday joys and sorrows that constitute daily life.
The most beautiful aspect of this film is its simplicity and warmth. I also love the sense of playfulness and joy that comes across in the film.
This film walks the talk. It will open your heart.
It would be great to see more films by Roberto Rossellini brought out on dvd. In my opinion he is one of the most underrated but greatest directors in the world.
