This review is from: Pope John Paul II: The Movie [VHS] (VHS Tape)
This was an excellent film telling the story of the young Karol, as well as a tiny bit about him as Pope. I found the scenes of Karol in Poland as it was under Nazi Occupation to be the best. The film captured his humor, and his heroism, and his sanctity (done in a very "true" way instead of a "hollywood holy" false way).
I strongly recommend this film. I'm puzzled by a few of the other reviews- I think they are mistaking this film for another one that's a documentary. This was a regular movie with actors playing the Pope, and the acting was very good.
