A bittersweet voyage back in the age of innocence.
"Peppermint" was probably the best Greek film for 1999. It 's the story of a personal voyage, a middle-aged man's voyage back to his age of innocence in the decades of the 50's and the 60's. The story is vibrant and full of emotions both sweet, funny and bitter. The music 's great and the acting outstanding, especially Annie Loulou's award winning performance. Don't miss it !
