Synopsis: Bouncing between moments of humor and gentle drama, this Uruguayan film is set in the late 1980s in a small town that is anxiously awaiting the arrival of Pope John Paul II. While the swell of visitors promises to be a boon for the local economy, smalltime crook Beto (César Troncoso) thinks he has figured out a unique way to capitalize on the pope?s visit: charge a fee for the visitors to use a toilet on his front lawn. Of course, not everything goes according to Beto?s creative plan, and THE POPE?S TOILET resolves in an unexpected way. Co-produced by Fernando Meirelles (CITY OF GOD), this film was Uruguay's submission to the 2008 Oscars.
