Black Peter

1964 / 85min / DCP

DIRECTOR: MILOš FORMAN

CAST: LADISLAV JAKIM, PAVLA MARTINKOVA, JAN VOSTRCIL

Forman’s charming feature debut finds the signatures of his early work (improvisational scenes, non-professional actors) already in place, in a film which observes the sweet summer months in a small town and the frustration of a put-upon teenager (Ladislav Jakim) employed nabbing supermarket shoplifters, spending his downtime poolside, desperately dreaming of escaping what he believes is a provincial purgatory.
