A good flick
20 March 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A decent movie, but as you can see from the review below by clyons, the calumny against Pope Pius XII never ceases. The so-called "silent" Pope was hailed at the time of his death by world Judaism as a hero who saved millions. Golda Meir praised him. The chief rabbi of Rome converted to Catholicism under Pius' wing. Leonard Bernstein halted a concert to mourn the passing of a "great humanitarian" upon learning of Pius' death. The New York Times editorialised in the 1940's that Pius was a lone voice crying out in the wilderness against the horrors of the Nazi regime. Why can't these pathetic Pius XII haters do a little research and get their facts straight? Ever heard of Google? Use it. Know what you're talking about before defaming one of the greatest, holiest men of the mid-20th century.
