THE JEWELER'S SHOP, 1988, with Burt Lancaster, based on a play by Karol Wojtyla, a.k.a. His Holiness Pope John Paul II. As a young dramatist he was highly regarded in Polish theatrical circles, although of course he hasn't written for the stage in many years now. The only comment on it at IMDB is extremely dismissive and has a distinct anti Catholic flavour; considering the high quality of the Pope's writing I can't help but imagine it's better than the fellow says. I'd like to get an opinion from somebody who has seen it.
Thanks.

I wouldn't ordinarily bump my own thread, but I have to believe this film isn't totally unknown, even if [as I suspect] it was released in Italy.
