SYNOPSIS – Filmed in Europe, RESTLESS HEART is the first full-length feature movie on St. Augustine. The screenplay is based on St. Augustine’s The Confessions; the film tells his amazing story in his own words!
Born in North Africa, Augustine studied in Carthage, becoming an accomplished but dissolute orator. After converting to Manichaeism, a guilt-free religion, he was called to the imperial court in Milan to serve as an opponent to the Christian bishop Ambrose. The constant prayers and fasting of his mother, Monica, and the witness of Ambrose ultimately led Augustine to Christianity.
Serving in Hippo in AD 430, Bishop Augustine urged the Roman garrison to negotiate with the Vandal King Genseric, but they proudly refused. Their decision forced Augustine to make a decision of his own. Christian Duguay directed the film, and the cast includes Franco Nero, Johannes Bandrup, Monica Guerritore and Alessandro Preziosi.
