We Have a Pope

It constantly flirts with the kind of plot set-ups that could have fueled a dozen vapid crowd pleasers, but instead the film chooses not to bring a single thing to any conclusion. Even the ending is another open story left hanging. This creates an intentional existential malaise, but never at the cost of its sweet humanist center. It's not a satire, it's not even that funny, but there is a delightful truth here.
