Night Sun: Based on Tolstoy’s Story

Based on Leo Tolstoys novel, Father Sergius, “Night Sun” tells the story of Sergio (Julian Sands), a nobleman in 18th-century Italy who is expected to marry a duchess (Nastassja Kinski).

Upon learning that his soon-to-be betrothed was previously the Kings mistress, Sergio turns his back on society and becomes a monk. While at the hermitage he tries to resist all sexual temptations before him and soon becomes known as a miracle worker. Eventually he succumbs to a young seductress and knowing he is undeserving of the adulation, leaves the hermitage to travel around as a homeless beggar.

“Night Sun” is available on DVD from Wellspring for the retail price of $19.98.
