An unflinchingly brutal portrait of a corrupt society
Working backwards from his suicide, this film never flinches as it shows the how Songho is stripped of his humanity by a government whose police and military brutally repress its citizens. By showing how Songho gets to his complete loss of self, Peppermint Candy demonstrates how easy it is for people to lose themselves in the face of repression. Thoroughly unpleasant to watch, but an important reminder of what happens in the world.
