Poet, actor, playwright, and a simple Polish priest, Karol Wojtyla (Thomas Kretschmann) believed the pomp of the Catholic Church was "a circus," and the Pope "a prisoner of the Vatican." But one day he would become Pope John Paul II, one of the greatest and most influential figures of the 20th Century. From his humble beginnings, he found inner strength and courage despite the death of his family, the rape of his beloved Poland by the Third Reich, and its later domination by the Communists. Among the world events covered in this inspiring chronicle is the shocking sexual abuse scandal of the American Catholic Church, the murder of El Salvador Archbishop Oscar Romero, and John Pauls own near-assassination at the hand of a Turkish gunman. "You dont have to be a Catholic or a believer of any kind to enjoy Have No Fear: The Life of Pope John Paul II." -- Wall Street Journal.
I just LOVE this movie! Watched over and over again. The acting is great and esp. the Nazi occupation in Poland was very interesting.Published 18 months ago by Lisa Geisler

I enjoyed this production. I am not a Catholic. I originally saw it on television several years ago. It was well acted. It was told in flashbacks. Read morePublished on February 19, 2008 by Scarlett Blakeney
