Inside the Vatican
S. Gibbons | 05/14/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Good graphics. Loved the tape. I have seen the outside of the vatican and this was a way for me to see the inside of it."

"I loved this movie! And for anyone who is interested in learning more about the Vatican I would strongly recommend it. It gives the viewer a good overview of life in the Vatican, some history, and what is going on presently. National Geographic did a great job."
One of the Best Produced Documentaries I Have Ever Seen!

"Anyone who's ever wondered what life is like at the Vatican need look no further than this very well produced dvd. Told in a very organised manner looking at typical major events in the lives of a number of people, the director uses these to inform and educate the audience just what goes on at as well as the history of the capitol of the Catholic Church. Even the blemishes are not covered up as there is a very frank discussion about the sale of indulgences which was a major factor behind the Reformation movement, about bad popes, about the wrongful treatment of Galileo etc. Narrator Martin Sheen does a great job as well as he describes what goes on in the build up to a Beautification, an appointment of an archbishop, an appointment of a Swiss Guard, the life of the official photographer, the council which decides on sainthood etc.

In addition to very good content I was very impressed with the picture quality which is first class as well as the sound quality which comes in Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound which is very rare for documentaries. This definitely enhanced my enjoyment of this dvd. This would be great viewing for RCIA's, cell groups, and other Christian study groups as a great way to find out what a "typical" day at the Vatican is about.

One of the best documentaries that I've ever seen and I highly recommend it!"
