    Nice social message, Bergman kills it- as you'd expect, and Giulietta Masina's little role is a treat. My enjoyment was hindered by that irritating trope of early 50's cinema: a completely illogical justice system that serves solely to be antagonistic. Bugged the hell out of me. 6 years 7 months ago

    At times the movie reminded me (stylistically) of von Sternberg's Dietrich: The Scarlet Empress (1934), Shanghai Express (1932).

    Scorsese said: "After making The Flowers of St. Francis, Rossellini asked, what would a modern-day saint be like? I think they based it on Simone Weil, and Ingrid Bergman played the part."
