This world is a frightening place that kills our desires and innocence....
13 August 2014 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

We usually don't saw these kind of films on a daily basis, and usually directors didn't make these kind of films on a daily basis.....

What a fantastic movie was Peppermint Candy, truly based on a real life, how a common person crushed by some dictators & this unpleasant society....

And in this movie innocence and desires of a common man was crushed by those kind of peoples who just love to follow hierarchy of this unpleasant society, we could even compare this man's story with our life story. In our childhood days we all aim for our future but how many of us achieve that aim...? Sometimes circumstance, sometimes our rituals, and most of times our society crushed our desires and aim.... Something like that happen to the person in this movie, his innocence and desires were killed by society.....

Apart from that direction, cast, screenplay, acting, locations, cinematography was amazing. Director Chang-dong Lee is beyond explanation all five movies directed by him should be considered as a masterpieces..... Every thing in this movie was too close to the reality, Chang-dong Lee is truly a realistic director.... So who love to live in reality must give it a try....
