"[The Jewish Cardinal] reminds us of the possibilities for goodness if there is respect, love and forgiveness between and among cultures and those of faith."
– Carole di Tosti, Blogcritics.com
"Robust, sumptuously produced and impeccably cast!"
– Kurt Brokaw, The Independent
"The Jewish Cardinal is both emotionally rich and intellectually satisfying...handled with rare balance, sense and suitable passion."
– Allen Ellenzweig, The Jewish Daily Forward

Synopsis

The Jewish Cardinal tells the amazing true story of Jean-Marie Lustiger, the son of Polish-Jewish immigrants, who maintained his cultural identity as a Jew even after converting to Catholicism at a young age, and later joining the priesthood. Quickly rising within the ranks of the Church, Lustiger was appointed Archbishop of Paris by Pope Jean Paul II - and found a new platform to celebrate his dual identity as a Catholic Jew, earning him both friends and enemies from either group. When Carmelite nuns settle down to build a convent within the cursed walls of Auschwitz, Lustiger finds himself a mediator between the two communities - and may be forced at last to choose his side.

SUPERB FILM I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW HOW OLD HE WAS WHEN HE DIED JB


JeffinSeattle - Customer Review
Interesting film! A Catholic priest with Jewish upbringing gets caught in the middle of the furor over a Catholic nuns' plan to instill a convent within Auschwitz. He attempts to reason with Pope John Paul II to put a stop to this.
