Saving Grace ()

directed by
featuring Tom Conti, Fernando Rey, Erland Josephson, Giancarlo Giannini, Donald Hewlett

This is an Italian comedy about a runaway, incognito Pope who makes his way to a village for a temporary stay and tries to bring a few good works to fruition while there. After Pope Leo XIV gets locked out of the Vatican garden one day, he opts for taking off on a small escape from official and bureaucratic burdens. Since he is not in his robes, who's to know? He heads for a remote village in the south of Italy that has no priest. He finds shelter with a former hooker and her mute daughter and then sets to work overcoming the local thugs and repairing a broken aqueduct. Meanwhile, back at the Vatican, the Cardinals are wringing their hands, trying to hide the fact that His Holiness has taken a powder. Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi Hide synopsis

Here is a Pope who is frustrated because he really doesn't know what the world is like on the outside and how the people live - he and the others in the Vatican have been out of the "people" loop for years. This movie takes a look at bringing the people to the fore in the Church.
