St. Michael Had a Rooster (Italian: San Michele aveva un gallo) is a 1972 Italian drama film directed by Paolo and Vittorio Taviani. It is an adaptation of Tolstoy's novel The Divine and the Human.[1]

The film was described as "A charming fable about the political and existential conflict between utopian socialism and scientific socialism, between two ways of understanding the revolution, the anarchist one and the Marxist one".[2]

The film was selected for the Quinzaine des Realisateurs in the 1972 Cannes Film Festival.[3]
