Black Peter Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

Czech director [[Performer~P90166~Milos Forman~milosforman]] won first prize at the Locarno film festival for his first feature film, Black Peter. This coming-of-age story about a shy teenager who falls in love, bears the heavy influence of [[Performer~P114620~Francois Truffaut~françoistruffaut]], as do most other "new wave" productions of the era. Even at this early stage, however, [[Performer~P90166~Forman~milosforman]]'s film-making prowess enabled him to transcend any and all imitations. In some areas, the film bore the title Peter and Pavla, reflecting the fact that pretty young [[Performer~P127407~Pavla Martinkova~pavlamartinkova]] played the girl. Black Peter was originally released in Czechoslovakia in 1963 under the title Cerny Petr. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
