In the past decade, much has been said about the Catholic Church's sex abuse scandal. Yet with Pope Francis, we have all thought that the crisis was over, that the church had learned its lesson. What we have found out instead, is rather shocking. In the 3 years that he has sat on St Peter's throne, Pope Francis has done very little about the priests who abuse children and the bishops who cover up their abuses: 2 pedophile priests out of 3 are still in the clergy, the special tribunal he announced does not exist and bishops are still instructed to not report abuses to the authorities. In this film, historian John Dickie investigates the causes of the Pope's inaction.

This is quite simply the best movies ever made. I'm sure director Jesus Garces Lambert planned it that way.

This movie has a special place in my heart possibly because I've done the work that Lucio Mollica has done before! Great choice of actors as well!
