Following the death of his mother, Karol Wojtyla is brought up by his father in the Polish city of Krakow during the first half of the 20th century. When his homeland is invaded by the Nazis in 1939, he secretly opposes the systematic persecution of their Polish culture. With the death of his father, Karol decides to follow a priestly vocation. When Poland falls into the grip of Soviet totalitarianism, the newly ordained Karol is constantly surrounded by young people whom he teaches to safeguard and defend human dignity. He could be considered a serious threat to the regime, but the Communist authorities merely see him as an innocuous intellectual and he becomes the youngest bishop in the history of Poland. When he is appointed Cardinal, Karol is more intransigent in the spiritual guidance of his homeland, becoming a real and proper thorn in the side of the Communist government. On the death of Pope John Paul I in 1978, Karol leaves his beloved Poland to become Pope John Paul II.

James O (br) wrote: Curtains is a rare breed in the slasher film genre. It's a mix of both a giallo and a slasher film, and it works! The difference between a giallo and a slasher is that a giallo focuses more on the suspense, scares, and mystery, while a slasher focuses on just killing people off in inventive ways. Curtains focuses on both, coming up with great ways of killing of people, while still delivering the shocks and scares. The killer looks cool, sporting an old hag mask, and there really is a mystery of who the killer is. However, I did suspect one character of being the murderer all along, and I was right! But that was just a lucky guess. It's a great film, even though the gore is almost none existent and the kills aren't TOO creative.

The machoness, drunkeness and lack of restrain of the people make him feel uncomfortable, until he himself gets absorbed into their world. Now begins a trip of self destruction and violence, something he had never imagined for himself. At the end all the smugness is gone and what remains is a changed man.
