I loved this film. The photography is breathtaking. the music lovely.The acting is amazing.
The film makers used effects to draw the viewer into Francis's frame of mind, and revelations, and I don't know the name for these effects, but they work well!
The movie was directed by Franco Zefferilli, who also made Romeo and Juliet.
I was so happy to be able to watch the complete movie through Youtube, and thought I'd share it here.
