Between 1993 and 1995 I lived in Lublin, Poland, where Karol Wojtyla used to teach. I met many Poles who thought that this was one of the greatest living men of the time. Not being Catholic, I had no positive nor negative opinions about him.

This year for some reason I became curious about the Pole, so many talked about as being a Saint. I had watched the other film about John Paul's life called, Karol-a man who would become Pope, before watching this film. I thoroughly enjoyed the other film, but felt it ended too early, as his life as Pope was not looked at. Karol left me intrigued to find out more about this man. I stumbled across this title by accident, I had no idea John Voight had made it.

This film starts with the assassination attempt May 13th 1981. It then regresses back to 1939 when Karol was living in Kracow and was an Actor and University student. Cary Elwes plays the young Karol. For me the actor Piotr Adamczyk who played Karol in the first film I watched was a far better actor for this role, he was just more believable. The two films look at the same events in general, but present what I thought were facts about his life in different ways. One of the films must be inaccurate, I am not sure which one is which. Once again with this film, a great deal of time is spent looking at his time in Poland and how he became Pope.

For me the utter delight of this film is in the second half, when John Voight takes over the role as the Pope. This is done whilst dressing, after his election to the Papacy. If I hadn't have seen the film, the idea of Voight playing John Paul would have sounded strange. All I can say after seeing the film is WOW, he looks and acts just like John Paul. Voight is so believable as Pope.

It is incredible that this film had not had a public showing in the UK. Here is a fascinating life of the greatest pope of the last century , a great saint, a man of enormous faith and intellect. We follow the story from the beginning of the second world war, the Nazi occupation of Poland, through to the post-war communist regime: the fears and courage, the doubts and the moral choices both the young and the old have to make under these extraordinary circumstances. There is a good balance of tension, drama, spirituality and humour. Although this was really good, in my opinion the film came into its own when the story moved to the Vatican. The determination and urgency with which John Paul II worked to achieve his objective, peace in the world, was infectious. I was deeply touched by his heroism, courage, self-giving and optimism. We knew about it while he lived but the details bring it home even more. It is also wonderful to see the conclave from the inside, the visitors to the private audiences as well as friends, cardinals, doctors, politicians. The director made a great job of this! And John Voight - although he does NOT look like John Paul II despite having a Czech grandfather - does really act like him and manages to convey his strength, charisma, charm, humility, cheerfulness and shall I call it luminosity? - simply his sanctity. The film is well researched. I was amazed to see that Cassaroli managed to arrange to have Lech Walesa brought out of prison for a private meeting with the pope somewhere in the countryside - with both communist minders and pope`s security men looking on from the distance!
I would also like to mention the moving music by Marco Frisina, an Italian composer and a priest.

Excellent production, respectfully and sensitively done. Carey Elwes and John Voigt are superb as the younger and older Karol Wotijla respectively. The film begins with the shooting of Pope JP2 in Rome and then traces back his early life and activities, showing how from the beginning he was involved in the cause of justice in Poland, and his emerging finally as the ideal candidate for the Papacy. With directorial assistance from the Vatican, this film is true to Wotijla's life and done with great style. Voigt's protrayal of the physical decline of the ageing Pope is very well done without being sentimental or stagey. The images from this film remained in my memory for weeks after my first viewing. I recommend it thoroughly.

What can be said about this iconic figure of the 20th Century that hasnt been said. This film gives a good review of St John Paul II's life and gives a good portrayal of the man behind the legend. Particularly moving performance by Jon Voight of the Pope's final days as he succumbs to Parkinson's disease is s tribute to the unyielding spirit of faith that kept him going to the very end.

This pope will be canonised on 27/04/13.
I would love to be present at the canonisation of this amazing man
I first started to watch this video (in Polish) during a pilgrimage to Poland from England.
I therefore purchased the English version from America,on return to UK.
a GRIPPING story throughout.
