Pope John Paul I: The Smile of God (Italian: Papa Luciani - Il sorriso di Dio) is a 2006 Italian television movie written and directed by Giorgio Capitani. The film is based on real life events of Roman Catholic Pope John Paul I.[1][2][3]

Plot

Contrary to his father's socialist views, Albino Luciani (the Pope’s birth name) entered the lower seminary in Feltre. After being ordained a priest in 1935, he became a vicar in his home parish. Then, while teaching theology at the seminary, he wrote a doctoral dissertation. In 1958 he became a bishop of Vittorio Veneto, in 1973 a cardinal, and a pope in 1978.[4]
