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>

Beautifully shot film about early Christianity...
16 August 2007 | by mtr0118See all my reviews

After seeing the 1981 made for TV film PETER AND PAUL, I wondered if any one could match or remake the story of early Christianity as adequately as SAINT PETER. Omar Sharif wasn't as bad as Peter like in the other biblical films he was been in in recent years. Johannes Brandhupp's Christ was OK after a fine performance in the resurrection scenes.The background and music was great.They should of shown a little bit more about Peter's relationship with Jesus much before his crucifixion.If you liked this film, you should watch PAUL THE APOSTLE and also THE APOCALPYSIS(Richard Harris). RAI LUX-VIDE really knows how to do biblicals.
