Storyline

An animated retelling set to Prokofiev's suite. Peter is a slight lad, solitary, locked out of the woods by his protective grandfather, his only friend a duck. In town, he's bullied. When a wolf menaces the duck - as well as grandfather's fat cat and an ill-flying bird that Peter has befriended - Peter bravely tries to tree the wolf. Grandfather, the townspeople, and the hunters who have antagonized Peter figure in the dénouement. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

A very excellent traditional animation
5 March 2008 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

This film earned the Oscar it got. Some very excellent traditional stop motion animation, combined with modern editing techniques.

The story is placed in a more modern world and given some new twists. A modern but deteriorating Russia set against an almost primal wilderness. The main character, Peter, has lost his Disney-like cuteness. And that's a good thing! He's a more streetwise but daydreaming Peter. Tough but lonely. The animation on the characters is simply superb. They even animated the fur of the wolf and cat!

Go see this animation as well as Dog, another one of Suzie Templeton's great little shorts.
