Synopsis by Hal Erickson
A favorite of the church-basement and kiddie-matinee circuit, Heidi und Peter is a sequel to the 1952 adaptation of Johann Spyri's Heidi. The youthful protagonists are herein played by Elsbeth Sigmund and Thomas Klameth. Peter comes to visit Heidi while recuperating from an illness. He gets well in a hurry as he and Heidi embark upon all sorts of exciting adventures. The film's climax takes place in an oversized thunderstorm as Heidi and Peter try to safely negotiate a treacherous mountain. It's perhaps best to see Heidi und Peter in a subtitled version; the voices on the English-dubbed prints are obviously supplied by adults.
