Movie Reviews

A good quick overview of Pope John Paul II
Derrik Mantel | Maplewood, MN USA | 11/29/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This video is a great overview of the pope's life. The drawback is that it is 57 minutes long. This is a great supplement to Weigel's Witness to Hope.

There is some great footage of Pope John Paul II that is unique to this video. There is a great scene in NY in the rain where the pontiff calls on America to defend the most vulnerable - the unborn and the old. In another scene from Brazil, the Pope gave away his gold cardinal's ring to be sold to assist the needy that he encountered in a Ghetto.

It is a great addition to any collection.

Topics covered include:

His early years
His election
His trips to the US & World
The Poor
CBS' 48 hrs special assignment in the Vatican

This short video is perfect for someone who wants a meaningful, objective, and abbreviated look at one of the most fascinating leaders of the 20th century.
