Note

The title of the film is borrowed from the biblical story about Jesus meeting the fisherman Simeon. He has chosen him as the first one of his twelve apostles and addresses him: Tu es Petrus, et super hanc petram aedificabo ecclesiam meam, et portae inferi non praevalebunt adversus eam (And I tell you, you are Peter which means rock and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.) The original Aramaic text uses the expression "cepha", standing both "Peter" and "rock".
