Very touching to see this pope with the children. He was truly the people pope. The footage of him outside the vatican and the music of Andrea Bocelli was a perfect marriage. I view this often. Good for small group discussion about the Pope following the teacing of Christ. Only One John Paul And Mother Teresa.

This DVD is great!!! Anyone who is interested Pope John Paul II and/or
Andra Bocelli will appreciate this. The producer did a magnificent job by showing the highlights of the Pope's life until his death and funeral.
All along Andrea's excellent voice guides you through the events.
We really enjoyed this!!!

First of all, I will state I am a devote Roman Catholic who loved and deeply admired Pope John Paul II. I had admired and loved him from the day he was elected Pope. I was glued to the TV at the time of his death, even now I miss him greatly as he had such great charisma with all people. So to hear of this DVD, that I did not know existed and to find out my most beloved opera/pop singer was the voice behind the scenes of Blessed John Paul's life and death, it was a must have for me. I certainly was not disappointed. I just sit and listen and the tears run down my face from the absolute beauty of voice mixed with pictures. The voice of Mr. Bocelli is so beautiful, and combined with the images it just about takes my breath away. Whoever did the synchronization of this DVD with the pictures of the Pope's funeral and reflections of his life mixed with the unmistakable voice of the Master, Andrea Bocelli is a real genius. It is so well done, so respectful and so well choreographed, this is a masterpiece; a work of art. This is worth so much more then money can express. No matter what the album the voice of Mr. Bocelli goes right through me, and it just stirs something deep with in me that is close to a deeply religious experience. Buy this today!! I want to thank Amazon.com as they recommended this DVD to me, a great recommendation.

This film is a deeply affecting montage of Pope John Paul II footage accompanied by the blind Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli singing beautiful sacred arias from the Catholic musical tradition. Bocelli has the purest voice of any tenor I've heard (his live concerts are better than any recording) and it's well suited to the images presented here. The film begins with footage from John Paul II's wake and funeral in 2005, then proceeds to incorporate old footage while constantly cutting back to the funeral, with the music (joyful, tragic, sad) perfectly matching the images. Much of the footage here has been seen before, such as the assassination attempt in St. Peter's Square in 1981 and the pope's 1983 visit to the gunman who shot him, but rarely has it presented with such emotional impact. The film has a requiem-like style and is unabashedly sentimental, but it works better than many documentaries on John Paul II because it tells his story through images rather than analysis, giving us the words and images of the man himself rather than talking heads interspersed with scant footage. I've seen a lot of documentaries on John Paul II and this film is the best at covering his entire life from birth to death even though it presumes some prior knowledge of the 20th century's greatest pope. The "Witness to Hope" film of George Weigel's book might give you more details of his life, but it ends in 2003 two years before his death, and it fails to move the heart quite like this one.

This is a very moving and inspirational tribute to Pope John Paul II. The combination of Andrea Bocelli's voice/music with the life/death of John Paul is simply beautiful. It lifts you to a new level of appreciation for John Paul's legacy.

This is a beautiful tribute to Pope John Paul II. It is absolutely magnificently choreographed with the beautiful voice of Andrea Bocelli singing the equally beautiful Sacred Arias. I highly recommend this.
