Synopsis

Bob Hoskins takes top billing in this compelling fact-based drama, which chronicles the life of Pope John XXIII, who was elected pontiff in 1958. Despite the rather ambitious idea of exploring his entire life from birth to death, director Ricky Tognazzi does a surprisingly good job, never allowing the sheer volume of material to distract from the message of the movie. Carlo Cecchi, Roberto Citran and Fabrizio Vidale co-star
