Pope Francis travels the world speaking to those in need and delivering a message of hope.
Documentary - This is a documentary about the background and beliefs of Pope
Francis. While certainly of most interest to Catholic and Christian
audiences, it has a general inspirational tone and message that also
holds appeal to general audiences. While featuring no objectionable
content or language, there is brief mention of issues of sexuality
and child abuse, but on the whole families will find this to be clean
NY PostFull Review Above Average While the film is best for fans of the cloth, non-Catholics, too, will gain insight into one of the most prominent leaders in the world. But director Wim Wenders could do without his cheesy re-enactments of St. Francis of Assisi — they look like a '90s bible study VHS tape — and I wish we learned more about Francis pre-papacy.
NewsdayFull Review Above Average Reverent to the point of promotional, but often inspiring as well. "Pope Francis” is built around four one-on-one interviews with the man himself. ... it's the closest most of us will ever come to an audience with this remarkable figure.
The GuardianFull Review Below Average Wim Wenders eloquently shows the pope's ethical and moral seriousness, but by failing to ask tougher questions, he ends up with the sugary version. ...this is an almost outrageously sugary, platitudinous film, like an ultra-glossy promotional video that might be shown on a loop in some tourist visitors centre associated with the Vatican.
