Legendary actor Omar Sharif gives a deeply moving, authentic portrayal in this epic film about St. Peter, the leader of the Apostles and first Pope, filmed on location in Europe. As a dedicated follower of Christ, Peter spreads the message of the Christians across the land, often staying only one step ahead of those determined to persecute him. As the tension between the Christians and the Romans grows, blood runs in the streets and the apostles lose St. Paul to martyrdom. On the road to Damascus Peter comes face-to-face with a stranger who shows him the only way—he must put himself on the cross in order to bring peace to Rome.
Beautifully filmed with outstanding cinematography, and excellent acting from a strong cast, especially the spiritually rich performance by Sharif, this is considered by many as the best film portrait ever made of St. Peter. Also stars Flavio Insinna, Daniele Pecci, Lina Sastri and Claudia Koll.
