"Under The Roman Sky" is a TV movie about Pope Pius XII at the time of his papacy during World War II. It stars Jim Cromwell in the title role.It was based on Vatican documents and testimonies told about the pope.
The movie was a great one especially when Pope Pius took action in saving Jews.Although it was known that the Jews reject Jesus, it surprised me that the screenplay took into account that lack of action taken by the pope in it.Apparently,his action was commendable enough as he is in no obligation in saving them due to religious difference.But in spite of it,we get to see how he provided being a great example as the head of the Catholic Church.
What makes the movie great is that Cromwell did a wonderful job in portraying the man. He really tried to portray a man characterized by holiness,courage and conviction. Watch it for him alone and you will truly be satisfied aside from having better appreciation of the late Pope Pius XII.
