Mortara case film at Cannes arouses anti-Catholic sentiment

Yesterday at Cannes was the day for Bellocchio's film (Kidnapped) on the Mortara case, the Jewish child baptised in articulo mortis and then separated from his parents. Already in the trailer, the mystification of facts is clear. Facts that Edgardo Mortara himself, who died in the odour of sanctity, effectively reconstructed in a memoir indigestible to the enemies of truth.
