POPE FRANCIS: A MAN OF HIS WORD

POPE FRANCIS: A MAN OF HIS WORD

Wim Wenders · Switzerland/Italy · 2018 · 96 mins · G · English, Spanish with subtitles
AwardsIMDbMetaCriticRotten Tomatoes 89%

Wim Wenders’s documentary about Pope Francis is shamelessly cuddly and genuinely inspiring. The former Archbishop of Buenos Aires, Jorge Mario Bergoglio is, famously, the first pope from the Americas, and he was also the first to take his papal name from Francis of Assisi, patron saint of animals and renouncer of wealth. Pope Francis insistently speaks on behalf of the poor, and this alone renders him an outlier among world leaders.

If you know anything about the papacy’s status quo, you know Francis is a radical. Wenders shows Francis petitioning U.S. Congress to accept immigrants and refugees. Francis advocates solidarity with the LGBTQ community and gender equality and cites ecological preservation as the world’s most pressing concern.
–NOW Toronto

“Honors and celebrates the shock of a man of God who would rather make this life better than hand out empty promises about the next.”
–Boston Globe
“We don’t have to believe, just as long as we can believe that he believes.” –The Globe and Mail
