PIUS XII - UNDER THE ROMAN SKY - DVD


 

Based on Vatican documents and personal testimonies used for the beatification of Pope Pius XII, this epic film stars acclaimed actor James Cromwell in a powerful movie about the great, often hidden struggle waged by the Pope and many others with him to save the Jews from the Nazis during WWII. After the Nazis took over Rome in 1943, Hitler's plan to kidnap the Pope is revealed as the Nazis attempting to silence the one authority figure in Italy standing strong against them. Everything comes together with great intensity in this dramatic story that retraces history from the documents and the testimonies of witnesses that were not fully known til now. Hitler and the Pope - on one side the man who catapulted the whole world into war and, on the other, the man who fought for peace more than any other. Despite all his efforts, Pius XII could not prevent some of the horrors in Rome when over a thousand victims were deported to Auschwitz. But history testifies that over 10,000 Jews were saved, hidden in churches and convents in Rome - more saved than in any other occupied city. Even among the Nazi officers were those who opposed such savagery and, thus, under the Roman sky, both the saved and the lost, the victims and the executioners, shout the Pope's cry with their lives: Nothing is lost with peace. Everything may be lost by war. Starring James Cromwell, Alessandra Mastronardi, Marco Froschi, Ettore Bassi, and directed by Christian Duguay (Restless Heart, Joan of Arc). DVD includes a deluxe 16-page companion Collector's booklet.
