    This powerful fictional film is based on the true-life story of Jean-Marie Lustiger (1926-2007), who, born of Polish Jews, joined the Catholic priesthood and was appointed Archbishop of Paris. There, he openly celebrated his dual identity as a "Catholic Jew," bringing him friends and enemies from both religions.
