The celebrated first feature by Milos Forman (Man on the Moon; Amadeus; One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest) is a revelation, heralding his talent and signaling his importance to the Czech New Wave and later the American film industry. Peter, a teenage malcontent, lands a job in a grocery store. But the boy finds the work, which involves spying on customers to prevent shoplifting, distasteful and depressing. He seeks relief through his clumsy romance with a shop girl. A delightful coming-of-age comedy, BLACK PETER finds its humor in the keenly observed details of youthful romance and teenage discontent.
