A beautiful movie with a special ending.
13 May 2001 | by See all my reviews

I enjoyed seeing that the person telling the story of what John XXIII did to help the Jewish children turned out to be one of those children who had grown up. Many knew of what this man did after becoming Pope. Not many knew of his unsung accomplishments that were done in the fearful times of Nazi threats.
