Description du produit
Da un dramma radiofonico scritta nel 1960 da Karol Wojtyla prima di essere eletto Papa Giovanni Paolo II. E' la storia di due coppie, di due matrimoni, di due amori diversi, che si agitano sullo sfondo della Seconda Guerra Mondiale e degli scempi nazisti. Ma il film è soprattutto un'intensa metafora delle nozze, unione eterna e indissolubile, che deve vincere la fragilità dei sentimenti umani.

This movie tells the story of two young Polish couples who marry in 1939, one of them staying in Poland while the other couple moves to Canada, and of a young Wojtyla-style priest who is their friend. Years later, the children of these two couples (one of which is separated by death while the other is estranged in their marriage) fall in love with each other, setting up an exploration of the true meaning of love. Wojtyla's theology of the body, a chaste view of sexuality that prioritizes respect for the opposite sex and for God's gift of human love, is thoughtfully explored in this teleplay. Actually, the film is surprisingly good for a stage-bound drama, offering decent location footage of Krakow and sensitive performances by Ben Cross and Olivia Hussey as two of the young spouses in 1939. Burt Lancaster also scores points for his warm portrayal of a mysterious jeweler in Poland who runs the titular shop where he sells the young couples their wedding rings, only to crop up again later in the story in a surprising way.
The screenplay is quite original in taking the play, which is essentially a series of monologues by the central characters, and cleverly transposing it into a dialogue-driven narrative storyline. Ultimately, the message of this film is that true love is deeper than physical attraction, and it's a painful lesson that we fail to learn at the peril of our children and the well-being of our families. But the good news is that children may still learn from the mistakes of their parents' failed marriages and create more lasting relationships, for love is the future of the human race. One feels the spirit of the late pope's joyful optimism about the human condition in every frame of this strangely moving wisp of a movie. It's not Shakespeare, but it's a very heartfelt and moving little film, and you'll be surprised just how much it touches you by the end if you watch with careful attention. It really feels like JPII's ideas on human love from "Theology of the Body" come to life on the screen here. I recommend it to anyone who wants to reflect more deeply on the nature of love within marriages and families.
