Highlights of the Life of Pope John Paul II
M. A. Ramos | Florida USA | 03/07/2007
(3 out of 5 stars)

"This eighty-three minutes DVD gives us an overview of the life of Pope John Paul II through clips of live footage, archival photography and some of his most moving orations. Like when speaking on front of a crowd in his native Poland, his compelling speech in war-torn Northern Ireland and the United Nations.

It does cover his life from a small polish town to Rome. And shows us the challenges he faced along the way including deaths in his family, W.W.II and his struggle to discern what he should do with his life.

The DVD includes a Gregorian Tridentine Mass celebrated by Msgr. Francis Weber. This DVD also has an option for Spanish subtitles.
Not worth any price

"I felt that some of the commentary in this film leaned toward anti-catholic/anti-clergy. The background music is NOT in the background - which is distracting. It also gets too carried away, claiming time and again that those around him knew he would be famous one day when he was a kid. The film just seemed very artifical.
