Trivia

The images of the mourners in St. Peter's Square at the beginning and the end of the movie are real newsreel footage. The images of John Paul's return to Poland, the reports of the assassination attempt, and the images from World Youth Day in Paris are also real footage. See more »

Goofs

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.

Really splendid stuff
17 April 2006 | by (Bracebridge Ont) – See all my reviews

I am an apostate Catholic, an agnostic and a cynic. Yet I was moved strongly by this excellent film which, if anything, is better than the first. Mind you, the bad guys are a little too bad. Heck, even assassins shave sometimes. And not all Soviet officials were quite as dour as the Russian heavies here. And surely Pope Paul John must have had some character flaws, however tiny. But no matter. The film captures the goodness of the man without being either preachy or idealistic. This is a well done historical epic that I trust will be trotted out every ten or fifteen years. It definitely will stand the test of time. And, coincidentally, kudos to CBC for showing it first in North America.
