Stefanos is a man at his 40's who has inherited a fortune from his mother's aunt. One day Manolis, his schoolmate, calls him and invites him to a party featuring an old friends' reunion. Surprised and delighted to hear his old friend's voice, Stefanos travels back in time, to his childhood and his youth, and remembers his extraordinary relationship with his cousin Marina, his best friend and first love. In a great long flashback, he remembers the utmost detail of his childhood, the family reunions, travels, acquaintances, and most importantly cousin Marina. By the coming of age, the dimension of the close friendship between Stefanos and Marina goes out of hand, and reaches its peak at a party when both are at their 20's. That party, that house, Marina... It won't be the last turn in Stefanos' life involving the very same trio... Written by Exiled Archangel®

Peppermint was one of the psychosis of the Greek middle-to-upper class family of the postwar era. It was a status symbol, and almost every Greek home with a good reputation, had a bottle in its refrigerator. It was the time of the first electric fridges (those monsters built by Kelvinator, me thinks), the first private cars moving in Greece, and some of the coolest dancing songs ever made, like "She Loves You". Friendship, being childish, and teenage love are the themes touched in this film, and the scenario and direction are very affectionate about it.

Having never lived this era (I am a child born in the evil 80s) I cant say that it brings me memories of my childhood, at least not in the way it does to my parents. But it certainly reminds me the treats of being childish from time to time...
