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>

Excellent story, but too long!!!
5 September 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

THE PROS OF THIS MOVIE: All-star cast line-up: Omar Shariff, Flavio Insinna, Lina Sastri, Milena Miconi. The legendary Omar Shariff gives a magnificent performance as Saint Peter, and this is the FIRST film that I ever saw him act. His final scene in the film is extremely touching. Flavio Insinna shines as David, the Roman slave Gladiator fighting for his family's freedom. It's always a joy to see him act in a fatherly role. His interaction with the children is extremely heartwarming, and his scenes with his wife, Anna, are beautiful. Omar and Flavio's scenes together is wonderful. Their interaction has such chemistry which really brings out the best in this film. Lina Sastri and Milena Miconi, who also worked with Flavio respectively in Don Bosco and Don Matteo, played their parts superbly. Lina's performance as the Virgin Mary was impeccable, and Milena Miconi, who I almost didn't recognize, because of her red hair dyed black, beautifully portrayed Mary Magdalene.

THE CONS OF THIS MOVIE: First, the movie's 197 minutes long, and usually I don't have an attention span past 2 hours. Second, Flavio doesn't appear until the second half of the film, and he's like the third person listed in the credits, which is the only reason why I even bothered to watch this film. Third, Flavio, Lina and Milena's voices were all DUBBED!!!!! The whole point of me watching this film was to hear Flavio's NATURAL voice!!!!! They hired some macho voice-over to dub Flavio's voice.

Overall, the movie is wonderful to watch, but some scenes they could've done without. The actor who portrayed Jesus was fantastic. This was an excellent production done by Rai and Lux Vide.
