Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Fosco Giachetti stars as St. Benedict, the founder of the Benedictine order, in the Italian Fear No Evil. Beginning life as the scion of a wealthy Roman family, Benedict de Norca forsakes all worldly goods to devote his life to God. The basic story will be familiar to followers of the Order and to religious scholars, but a general audience might have trouble following the plotline. In the tradition of Cecil B. DeMille, director Giueseppe N. Scotese shows the viewer the evils of sin by depicting sinners in action. Fear No Evil is largely set at the Monte Cassino monastery, much of which had to be reconstructed in a sound stage because of damages incurred by the monastery during WW II.
