Holy crap this was an awesome movie. Some great, powerful filmm aking in many parts.

My favorite though, by far, was watching the two popes in the closing credits as they watched the Argentina v. Germany soccer match. What great heart this scene had!

Rating: ★★★★½

  1. What struck me about the film, and the football match scene typified this, is how human it made the two men. We often forget that, all the religious aspects aside, people in roles like this can be human. Mind you, that does not apply to everyone in positions of power in churches, politics or business.
