Watch Peter & the Wolf - Alternative Versions.
I saw Peter & the Wolf at its world premier in the Royal Albert Hall,
accompanied by the Philharmonia orchestra. That's an electric
experience that will be hard to duplicate
But it certainly won't
detract from watching the film in future. Is it a re-imagining of P&TW,
a reinterpretation, or a modernisation? Actually, it's all three.
Peter's stamping ground is visualised in a depressed, cold and
windswept forest somewhere in Eastern Europe; it's hard to tell if it's
pre or post Soviet economic bloc. It could be any time, and that is the
first great achievement of the film. Peter is a wan, pale and sullen
young boy, garbed in hoody and dirty trousers, a stroppy kid, the type
who lives down the road yet his surroundings are timeless. It raises
the themes of conflict between rural and urban, youth and age and
cruelty and compassion with great dexterity. It's an adaptation that
speaks both to the past and the present, which is no mean feat.
The plot is well-known and well-worn: the down-trodden Peter escapes
the confines of grim homestead and taciturn, unsentimental grand-pappy
with his pet duck and a bird with a broken wing (supported by a
balloon, in a very nice touch) to go playing in the unbounded, frosty
woods. Until the wolf creeps in. After suffering a great loss at the
wolf's paws, Peter must rise to the occasion and capture the beast, who
is much stronger and more ferocious than Peter is, but less clever
rites of passage tale and an introduction to the orchestra for
children, this version is actually quite gruelling in some respects.
Impoverished and inhospitable, Peter's home life is plausibly
miserable, and also easy to relate to: his run-ins with better
clothed-and-fed peers and ugly hunters convey beautifully the threat of
bullies and ignorant adults. Sharp and clever, but morose, Peter is a
compelling hero, and the coda with him standing triumphant and grown,
will provoke cheering and a quickened heartbeat.
The stop-motion animation is far less slick than that seen in Wallace
and Gromit, but extends a naturalistic, un-burnished and at times
almost ghoulish appeal. The slightly jerky movements, warped faces and
grimy sets combine to create a world at once familiar yet also
deformed, blighted by neglect and insensitivity. The animation also
works amazingly well with the music, the movements of people and
animals alike assuming the beats, leaps and whirls of the instruments.
I guess you could call this a true musical, because while the
characters may not leap into spontaneous song and dance, the music
actually speaks for them. I'm not much of a music critic, nor do I know
Sergei Prokofiev's piece (or any of his music, for that matter) at all
well, but I still loved the soundtrack. It did sound modern, and had
obviously adapted and moulded to fit the film with small nuances and
flourishes, but I'm sure Prokofiev would have approved.
Considering the applause the film got, I'm certain no one else minded
