Storyline

Saint Peter, a reluctant but passionate leader, from the crucifixion of Jesus to his own. The film's first half dramatizes the New Testament's "Acts": early fear, the renewal of Pentecost, Saul's conversion, the decision to baptize pagans, and the Apostles' dispersal. In the second half, an aged Peter goes to Rome to join Paul, arriving on the day of Paul's arrest. Paul's death brings a crisis to Rome's Christians and to Peter; lessons from Jesus's teachings guide his decision to stay. Events within the fictive household of Persius, a Roman aristocrat, capture the upheaval that Christian teachings bring to the Eternal City. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

26 May 2016 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

Omar Shariff does a good job. that is the first verdict after the end of film. a film who propose , in 197 minutes, not a religious lesson but a circle of stories. and who propose a different Saint Peter, more humble, kind and, maybe, wise. it is touching and convincing. it is beautiful and credible. and propose an inspired manner to discover the Christianity in its essence. that is the rare gift who impose this film as a trip in the manner to assume the faith. Saint Peter of Omar Shariff is vulnerable and looking the right answer to his brothers and sisters in faith. he becomes a guide for community as result of his fear, doubts, need to be the disciple of the Lord who is not only the model but the only real solution to assume the challenges.and that does Peter not the first Pope, the saint or the first apostle but a kind of country priest from the novel of Bernanos. his success is different by the character of the French writer. the purpose is the same. and that detail does the film beautiful. the dialog, the patience, the atmosphere, not real different by the atmosphere of many Christian films but more subtle and warm for send the message in right manner. a film about the build of faith. and the birth of Church.
