We've got a real short film treat for you you today. This is called Peter, and it's based on a graphic novel by Regis Loisel. It tells the story of Peter Pan, but this is a much darker vision of the character than anything you've ever seen before. The short was written and directed by Nicolas Duval, and it's a beautifully made film. The special effects and visual designs are pretty incredible. I was pretty impressed by the short, and I would love to see the story continue.
This short film presents the first striking stages of Regis Loisel’ s work ‘Peter Pan’ where he puts forward his dark vision of the world in the way of a fairy tale for adults. The film displays Peter as a child, years before Sir James Matthew Barrie’s one. We all know that Peter Pan is an eternal child who hates adults and whose sworn enemy is captain Crochet. But how did he come to this ? London in 1887 hunger coldness and poverty provide the setting.
Brought up by a tyrannical and alcoholic mother Peter finds his salute only in the dreams and tales which free his imagination. One night, after a violent quarrel with his mother he takes refuge on the docks. There a small and attractive fairy who needs help will take him to the imaginary country.
Thus begins the fabulous story of Peter a child from the poor area of White-Chapel who will later become Peter Pan. He will have to face the awful captain Hook in an everlasting fight for the treasure and survival of the island.
Enjoy the show!
