For all real Catholics this movie is heresy and does not correctly portray the central tenet of our faith. I am very sorry I watched it especially on Easter Sunday !! I don't believe that the Pope would have ever denied the belief in Transubstantiation !!! Yes, I can see making sure that the new rite of facing the congregation for the Mass was followed and saying the Mass in English. But to deny what the Mass truly means is this author's misunderstanding of the events and of the Catholic faith. And to expect monks to obey something that denies what the early Christians died for is to make a mockery of everything Catholics believe and everything Christ taught. Christ gave us Himself in the Eucharist. Christ is truly present in the Eucharist ! Christ died for us and this movie denies all of these facts. This movie only goes to show the ignorance of people not willing to investigate the Catholic faith and to discover Truth.
