Read the Play, the message is stronger
4 April 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The performances are weak, probably due to lack of strong direction regarding the message of the stories put forth in the play written by Karol Wojtyla (John Paul II). The previous comments were made by someone that clearly didn't "get it" and thus sounds unintelligent and rude. The love put forth for pondering within the story is one of great value, that of the commitment in a marriage. Granted, the movie is weak, even Lancaster, but I encourage everyone to read the original play written by a playwright who obviously felt the love of which he spoke. With the recent passing of the Pontiff, no doubt much of his life before and after becoming Pope will be put to scrutiny even more than when his biography was released in the 1990's. Hopefully those wishing to find out more about him will delve into his theater background, fascinating.
