Accurate portrayal of Fr. Jorgé Bergoglio
16 February 2017 | by lamapaenitensSee all my reviews

This follows many events of Fr Jorgé in his time from entering the seminary to his election as head of the Roman Catholic Church. What I saw that really impressed me was the growth of the man throughout his life. It was mainly a growth in his ability to have empathy for people, particularly the marginalized and the families of missing persons. He learns how to love and give of himself and to not think of himself so much. He began to see the role of the Church as a promoter of social justice.

I found the acting and cinematography excellent. The movie is in Spanish but after a few minutes I wasn't aware of them any more.
