Black Peter (2008)

Original title: Must Peeter

Feature film | Comedy Duration 21:04

Sarcastic comedy based on Peeter Sauter's short story "Black Peter". The film tells a story about a married couple who keep fighting and upsetting each other. Peter and his wife are having dinner in a restaurant with their friends. The wife says that they have not quarreled for already two weeks. However, this is just a pretext, preceding a solid war. She provokes the husband with masochistic consistency and will achieve her goal. The man's response is striking and ridiculous.

Director: Priit Pääsuke
