Plot & Details

As co-produced by The Vatican, this deeply reverent documentary takes a long and fond look back at the life and accomplishments of His Holiness, Pope John Paul II, née Karol Jozef Wojtyla (1920-2005). Director Pawel Pitera's strategy involves filtering John Paul's papacy through the eyes of Cardinal Stanislaw Dziwisz, Wojtyla's right hand man and one of his closest friends. Michael York narrates; the title translates, literally, as "Birth Certificate."
