Un Papa en la tormenta (part 2)

Second part of the "bio-pic" of Paul VI. Part 1 here.

Again, thanks for this further installment.

These two clips go some way in dispelling the false myths associated with both Pacelli and Montini.

Fascinating to see these first two parts. Whilst I agree that the film does dispell some of the myths surrounding Pius & Paul, the makers continue to buy into the the 20th century's greatest myth that World War "II", which was really a resumption of the war begun in 1914, was a "good" if not moral war. It will take decades if not centuries for that myth to be dispelled. The current BBC series "World War II Behind Closed Doors" gives a hint of future revelations to come. In a recent episode a Polish veteran described Churchill as a "gangster". How many British and American people would currently agree with that claim?
