On 13 December 1981, the Pope is informed by the cardinals about the introduction of martial law in Poland. When he asks for fatalities, he is told about nine miners shot at the Wujek coal mine - an example of clairvoyancy, since the shooting at Wujek took place three days later, on 16 December 1981.

I very much agree with the comments made by Piotr and dennis888 above. Not nearly as detailed or introspective as the first part, and far too obsequious.
It's funny, the same director made the first part of Pope John Paul II's biography and it was very good. Now this second part seems as if it was made only to get over with it once and for all. There is no emotion in the film-making (which was evident in the first part) no humanity in the characterization of Karol Woytila, he seems like a sanctified caricature of himself, there are no doubts, no dwelling, no uncertainties. Also the world events which he helped to shape are treated very superficially, almost as if they reluctantly had to be somehow included. A shame really, I was expecting something much better.
