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>

hmmmm....horrible acting except for Omar Sharif....I can't believe the producer won an award for this travesty!!
24 November 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

good things about this movie...Peter's acting is really amazing and believable (most of the time) and scenery, camera action and music are better than mediocre...

bad things: ACTING....OMG it is terrible!!! I have never seen a movie with that horrible acting...from Paul, Silvia, Fulvia, Jesus (who looks like a Dracula)...all the extras sucked ...along with the fakest crying and screaming I have ever seen!! Audio-Video Synch....WOW!!! soooo annoying enough said... Acting Voices...some of the actors' voices don't match the way the look, react or behave...or even the way they express their emotions... Direction of movie....it's like the Acts that you never read! really who wrote this script!!! and a love story that I could never find in any documented Christian book or history!!!

BOTTOM LINE: ITALIANS SHOULD NOT DIRECT English MOVIES!!!!
